Police investigating a fatal stabbing in Morden have arrested a third person in what is being treated as a murder inquiry.

Yesterday (Friday, October 9), the 20-year-old was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He was taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.

He was the third person to be detained by officers from the Met Police as they investigate the fatal stabbing of 25-year-old Patrick Gomes De’Almeida in Morden.

Two other men have previously been charged with Patrick's murder.

The stabbing took place outside a block of flats on London Road in Morden on Thursday, October 1.

First responders including the Met and paramedics from London Ambulance Service attended, and found two men including Patrick suffering from stab wounds.

Patrick was sadly pronounced dead at the scene at 11.26pm.

In a tribute released by Patrick’s family, they said: “P had a heart of gold. He was loving, caring and full of life and laughter. You always knew when P was in the room.

"He had the gift of making people smile. P will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Life will not be the same. As he always said ‘It’s not a party without P’."

The second man who was stabbed on the night in question, aged 33, was taken to hospital with "non-life threatening" injuries.
