Police investigating the 2007 murder of Edvin Johnson in Southwark have made a new arrest in the case and are renewing their appeals for witnesses and information.

A reward of up to £20,000 for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible continues to be offered.

This morning, 19 September a 23-year-old man [P] was arrested in connection with the murder and was taken into custody at a central London police station. He was later bailed to return in late October pending further enquiries.

On Sunday, 16 September 2007 19-year-old Edvin Johnson was found with a single stab wound to his groin at around 21:00hrs in the stairwell of Barnet House, Crawford Estate SE5.

Three knives were recovered during subsequent searches of the area. One of these had Edvin’s blood on it.
