Police investigating the death of a Leyton man in Tower Hamlets have arrested the man they believe stabbed him.

Mohamed Ensser died aged 33 on 21st September after reports of a street fight involving a group of men in East Ferry Road on the Isle of Dogs.

Police were called to the scene shortly before 8.30pm that night and found Mohamed bleeding out from multiple stab wounds, including a fatal wound to his neck.

Despite treatment from paramedics, he died at the scene less than half an hour later.

Following an appeal for information, police have found and arrested 20-year-old Kwabena Boateng on suspicion of his murder.

Speaking at the time of Mohamed's death, Detective Chief Inspector Laurence Smith said officers believed the violence was "an isolated incident".

He added: “We are aware of footage circulating on social media and I respectfully ask that this footage not be shared further as it not only encourages unhelpful speculation, but could compromise any future legal proceedings."
