Detectives have released CCTV images of the moments before a ‘loving father-of-two’ was stabbed to death in a Camden street.
Dutchman Romeo Nkansah, 37, was killed minutes after he and his friends started talking to a group of women after a night out in Camden Lock.
Detectives said an argument then broke out between Mr Nkansah and a group of men who were friends with the women as they walked along Greenland Street at around 3.30am on Sunday and the victim was fatally stabbed.
Police and ambulance service were called and Mr Nkansah was taken to hopsital where he died an hour later.
Detectives have released CCTV images of the moments before and after the murder and appealed for the women and other members of the group to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Piscopo, who is leading the investigation, said: “I would appeal to those people who were part of either group that Sunday morning to come forward and talk to police.
“It is clear that you may have vital information about the events that led up to Romeo’s murder and who is responsible.
