Appeal for witnesses in to murder of Arron Payne

September 18, 2012, 1:52 pm

Detectives investigating the murder of a man in Wembley continue to
appeal for witnesses two weeks on from his murder.

On Wednesday, 5 September police were called shortly before 19:00hrs to
reports of a stabbing in Chalkhill Road, Wembley.

Officers and the ambulance service attended and found a 26-year-old man
suffering stab wounds.

He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital where he later died on Thursday, 13
September.

Next of kin have been informed and formal identification has taken
place. The man is Arron Payne, aged 26, from the Wembley area.

A post mortem examination took place at Northwick Park Hospital on
Friday, 14 September and gave cause of death as haemorrhaging as a
result of a stab wound.

The investigation into the stabbing was initially with officers from the
CID on Brent Borough but it has now been taken on by the Homicide and
Serious Crime Command (HSCC).

Officers are keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone who has
information on what happened.

In particular they wish to speak to a woman with a push chair who was
seen in the area at the time of the attack.

Also officers would like to speak to any of Arron’s friends who may hold
valuable information.

Officers will be at the scene of the murder between 18.00 hrs to 21.00
hrs on Wednesday 19 September seeking to speak members of the public.

An incident room has opened at Hendon under Detective Chief Inspector
Andy Manning from the HSCC.

DCI Manning said: “I would like to reiterate my appeal for anyone who
was in the Chalkhill Road area of Wembley around the time of the
incident to come forward and speak to my officers or contact
Crimestoppers anonymously.

“Even if you did not see the incident itself, you may have witnessed the
events leading up to, or immediately after the stabbing. What you saw
could prove vital in bringing whoever is responsible for this callous
attack to justice.

“Arron was young man with a steady job, from a good family and was in a
committed relationship with his girlfriend. He had his whole life to
look forward to.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call the incident
room on 0208 358 0300 or Crimstoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
