A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed to death by two attackers on a moped in south-east London.

The 31-year-old man was fatally wounded during a clash in which shots were also fired in Greenwich town centre in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The victim had first been approached by the pair of attackers in King William Walk at 12.15am, police said.

The attackers, both male, fled the scene on the moped and emergency services arrived to find the man with stab injuries.

Despite the efforts of the police and the London Ambulance Service, he was declared dead at the scene.

The victim’s next of kin have been informed.

Detectives have launched a murder investigation and said they “retain an open mind as to the motive” of the horrific attack.

The killing is the latest harrowing crime to hit the capital in which the attackers were riding a moped.

On Thursday night, a string of acid attacks were carried out allegedly by two men driving a scooter.

Two moped riders attacked people in a 90-minute spree in Islington, Stoke Newington and Hackney on Thursday night.

Two teenagers, aged 15 and 16, have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery.

They remain in police custody.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
