Two people have been charged with the murder of an 18-year-old man in Barnet.

The two suspects, 15 years old boys, were charged on Friday, 11 August.

They will appear at Willesden Youth Court on Saturday, 12 August.

Homicide detectives launched a murder investigation after a fatal stabbing in Regent’s Park Road, N3, at 21:40hrs on Monday, 7 August.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found 19-year-old Yusuf Mohamoud from Enfield at the scene, seriously injured.

Despite best efforts, he died at the scene.

His family continue to be supported by officers from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.

A post-mortem examination on Wednesday, 9 August, confirmed he died due to a stab wound.

Detectives continue to appeal for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Rawlinson, who is leading the investigation, said:“We have made good progress, and this is a significant development. However, our investigation continues, and we are still working to locate a third suspect.

“With that in mind, I would reiterate my appeal to anyone who was in the area of Regent’s Park Road, near the junction with Lichfield Grove, and who witnessed the events that led to the attack on Yusuf, to get in touch.

“I’m specifically keen to talk to anyone who was in the area between 21:00hrs and 22:00hrs on Monday, 7 August.

“Another young man has died as a result of violence and we need the public’s help to ensure Yusuf’s family get the justice they deserve.”
