The Metropolitan Police have issued an appeal in an attempt to find a teenager who has been named as a suspect in the murder of a 21-year-old last week. George David, 16, is wanted in relation to a murder that took place in Lewisham, south London. Gabriel Petrov Stoyanov, 21, was stabbed to death on Friday, November 4 in the Downham neighbourhood.
The suspect is a resident of Downham and is thought to have links to Bromley and Orpington.
The victim was rushed to hospital after the attack at 11.50pm in a critical condition but died just hours later on Saturday afternoon.
The attack had taken place on Bromley Road, Downham, in Lewisham.
A 17-year-old who was arrested on Thursday, November 10 on suspicion of murder remains in custody at a South London police station.
A 14-year-old boy who was also arrested on Tuesday, November 8 on suspicion of murder also remains in custody after a warrant for further detention was authorised.
Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen, investigating, said: “Two arrests have been made as part of our investigation but we urgently need to speak to George David. Officers from across the Met are working to trace him.
“George, my message directly to you is that you must attend a police station immediately. We believe it’s possible George is being hidden or moved around by people he knows.
“My message to those people is that if you are working to frustrate our enquiries you should be very much aware of the trouble you could find yourself in. We will seek to arrest and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.”
