A 29-year-old man who died last week from a stab wound to the heart while sitting in a south London park has been photographed for the first time. On Friday, December 30, Kalabe Legesse was’minding his own business’ in Peckham Rye Park when he was the victim of a random attack. He was discovered with serious stab wounds near a cafe off Strakers Road in the park at 8.24 p.m. Despite the best efforts of London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance crews, the 29-year-old man died half an hour later at the scene.   The Metropolitan Police have launched an investigation as the search for the perpetrators continues. A post-mortem examination revealed that he died as a result of a haemorrhage and a stab wound to the heart. Mr Legesse’s family has been notified, and they are being assisted by specialist officers. The incident was described as a “brutal and senseless attack” by police officers. Officers are now seeking information and looking for two suspects who were seen fleeing the park on pedal bikes in the moments following the ‘brutal and senseless’ attack.

At this early stage in the investigation, we believe we are looking for two suspects who fled the scene on pedal bikes towards Peckham Rye.’ Following the stabbing, a planned New Year’s Eve run in the park was cancelled.   ‘At this early stage in the investigation, we believe we are looking for two suspects who fled the scene on pedal bikes towards Peckham Rye.’ Following the stabbing, a planned New Year’s Eve run in the park was cancelled.
