Police are seeking a man after a 33-year-old was fatally stabbed in the neck near the Greenwich foot tunnel in September.

Officers were called to East Ferry Road, Isle of Dogs, after receiving reports of men fighting at 8.26pm on September 21, where they found Mohamed Ensser, 33, suffering stab injuries.

He was administered CPR by police prior to the arrival of paramedics. Despite their best efforts, Mohamed, from Leyton, was pronounced dead at the scene at 8.52pm.

Police wish to speak to Kwabena Boateng, 20, of Dod Street, E14, in relation to the incident.

He is described as 6ft 2inches tall, of medium build with short hair and speaks with a London accent.

Boateng was last seen leaving a hotel in Commercial Road in Tower Hamlets on the afternoon of September 22.

Mohamed’s next of kin were notified of his death and continue to be supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination on September 23 found the cause of death to have been a stab wound to the neck and hypovolemic shock.

A murder investigation was launched. There have been no arrests at this stage.

Detective Chief Inspector Larry Smith, who leads the investigation, said: “We would urgently like to speak to Kwabena Boateng in connection with the investigation. Anyone seeing Boateng should not approach him, but should call 999 immediately.

“I would also ask if you have information, images or footage relating to any stage of this incident please do feel free to approach officers in the area, or, if you prefer, contact us directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers.

“No matter how small or insignificant your information seems, it could be a missing piece of the puzzle or may confirm information provided by someone else. If you can help, please do make the call.”

Anyone with information should call the Incident Room on 020 8345 3895, call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 7234/21Sep21 or Op Teramo.
