CCTV stills and video footage have been issued of a man police wish to speak to in connection with a fatal stabbing in Nine Elms.

32-year-old Theo Porteous was found collapsed in Thessaly Road having suffered multiple knife wounds on Thursday 24 August at around 12.30pm.

Paramedics battled to save him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene around half an hour later.

The man police wish to locate was seen in the location at the time. He was wearing sun glasses, a blue shirt and shorts with striped socks. Video footage shows him approaching a block of flats on Thessaly Road.

Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, who is leading the investigation, said, 'My thoughts are with Theo's family and friends, at what is an unimaginable time for them.

'I have assured them that I and my team will do everything we can to bring those responsible for Theo's murder to justice.

'Our investigation is progressing at pace and I want to ask for the public's help in identifying the man in the CCTV image.

'I would ask anyone who recognises him to get in touch without delay. Likewise, anyone with any information about Theo's murder should get in touch – even details that may seem irrelevant could be important to our investigation.'


Anyone who witnessed this incident or has footage should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 3633/24AUG.
