Two men have been charged with murder after a charity worker was stabbed to death in Little Venice on Monday.
Detectives have charged Nathan Gilmaney, 18, and a 17 year old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, with the murder of Abdul Samad, from Maida Vale.
Mr Samad, 28, was stabbed outside his home on St Mary’s Terrace just before midnight and passed away at St Mary’s hospital in Paddington an hour later.
A post-mortem examination shows that Mr Samad died from a stab wound to the chest.
The two teenagers were arrested in West Hampstead, a few hours after the incident took place, in Broomsleigh Street.
