Police appeal for information as 23-year-old named as victim of fatal stabbing in Greenwich

Reece Tshoma, 23, has been named as the victim of a fatal stabbing in Greenwich by investigating detectives.

Officers were called at 8:37pm on Thursday March 29 to a south-east London hospital after a male was suffering from a stab wound to his neck. He had been driven to the hospital in a car by a friend.

Despite the extensive efforts of medical staff the man died later that evening.

A post-mortem examination gave cause of death as a stab wound and internal haemorrhage.

On Tuesday April 3 he was formally identified as Reece Tshoma, from the Barking area of east London.

Detectives believe that Reece was attacked near Nathan Way, Thamesmead.

There have been no arrests at this stage.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, who is leading the investigation, said: “This investigation is ongoing and we are still piecing together exactly where and how the victim was attacked.

“Were you in the Plumstead area on the evening of 29 March?

“Did you witness a commotion or altercation, or see anything that seemed unusual, like a person or group of people running in the area?

“Any piece of information is useful to our investigation and I would urge you to call police immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact 020 8721 4805, or call police on 101 quoting ref 7434/29 March.

Alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers via 0800 555 111.
