A 22-year-old man was arrested in the Colindale area during the afternoon of Thursday, May 9, on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody at a north London police station.

Detective Superintendent Tony Bellis from the North West Command Unit, responsible for policing Edgware, said: “This is a significant development in this investigation and comes as a result of fast-time work from specialist detectives working alongside local officers.

“The investigation remains in its early stages, and we continue to work to establish why this incident took place, including whether the person responsible was known to the woman who died. I would urge people to refrain from speculating about the circumstances while this work is ongoing.

“A family has been left devastated by this shocking attack and my thoughts are with them at this unimaginabley difficult time.”

Police were called at around 11.50am on Thursday, May 9, to reports of a stabbing in Burnt Oak Broadway, close to the junction of Limesdale Gardens.

Officers, London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance all attended the scene.

A woman – believed aged in her 60s – was treated for stab injuries. Sadly, despite the best efforts of all the emergency services, she died at the scene.

Work continues to inform her next of kin.

A crime scene remains in place at the location.

An investigation is ongoing led by homicide detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
