Detectives investigating the murder of Robert Weston in Harrow have made an arrest as they continue to appeal for anyone with footage of the incident to come forward.

Robert Weston, 37, of Harrow, died following an incident on Monday, February 26, and a murder investigation is underway.

A 19-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday, February 27, on suspicion of murder. He was taken to a north London police station where he remains at this time.

Detective Chief Inspector John Neil said: “Our enquiries remain ongoing, but I would like to confirm that at this point in our investigation we don’t believe there are any further outstanding suspects.”

Superintendent Matt Cray, who leads policing in Harrow, said: “This is a devastating incident and our thoughts are with Robert’s family and loved ones.

“We remain in the early stages of our investigation, however I am confident there is no wider risk to the community in Harrow.

“This will have a significant impact on how the community feels about their safety and there will be enhanced patrols in the area over the next few days to respond to any concerns people may have.

“The team of detectives who are investigating Robert’s death are working hard to establish what happened, and I would ask that anyone who has not yet come forward with information, which could help their enquiries, does so without delay.”

Police were called at approximately 2.05pm on Monday, February 26, to Hamilton Crescent with reports that a man in his 30s had been stabbed.

Officers, medics from London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended. The man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Although formal identification is yet to take place, Robert Weston’s family were informed and they will continue to receive support from specially trained officers.

DCI John added: “This was a terrible incident and my condolences are with the victim’s loved ones.

“We believe that the assault took place inside a house and enquiries are ongoing to determine how Robert came to lose his life.

“At this time, I am interested to hear from anyone who was travelling in Hamilton Crescent or Kings Road around the time of the offence, and who may have dashcam footage to share.

“This would have been between the times of 1.45pm and 2.15pm on Monday, February 26.

“Even if you didn’t see anything significant, your dash cam footage may tell a different story, so please do contact my team of detectives.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote CAD3619/26Feb. You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
