In south London, a woman was fatally stabbed in what is thought to have been a random attack. A man has been charged with her murder.
At around 4 p.m. on Monday, Johanita Kossiwa Dogbey, 31, was fatally attacked in Stockwell Park Walk, Brixton, and she was declared dead at the scene.
Murder and possession of an offensive weapon are the charges brought against Mohamed Nur, 33, of Vauxhall, southwest London.
He has also been charged with three counts of GBH against two women and a man who suffered slash injuries in separate incidents in Brixton, all within a one-hour period on Saturday, April 29.
Nur is due to attend Croydon Magistrates Court on Friday, 5 May.
At the time of her murder, Ms Dogbey was reportedly on her way home from buying a birthday gift for her mother and speaking on the phone to her grandmother, who heard ‘a terrible scream’.
Ms Dogbey was walking when she was attacked from behind by a stranger, detectives believe.
Her loved ones described her as a ‘smart, dedicated and loving girl who always helped anyone’.
In a statement released through the Metropolitan Police, they said: ‘She hasn’t got one bad bone in her body. She wouldn’t hurt a fly.
‘We can’t believe a senseless crime like this has happened as we can’t imagine who would do this to her.’
