|Man Sought in Connection With Acton Murder|
Police investigating killing of Khalid Safi make appeal to trace Raza Khan
Police have issued a photo of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the murder of a man in Acton.
On 1 December last year at around 6.30pm 18-year-old Khalid Safi was found suffering from stab wounds on the Victoria Road outside the Holiday Inn. He was taken to hospital but died shortly after from what the post mortem revealed to be a stab wound to the heart.
Officers have now released a picture of a man they want to talk to about the events of that night - 19-year-old Raza Khan. Police are urging anyone who recognizes him or knows where he is to contact police immediately.
Detectives believe Khan is likely to still be in the UK. He is known to have links to some London areas, including Acton, Wembley, Ilford, Friern Barnet and Tottenham and also to Dover, in Kent.
Detective Chief Inspector Sam Price, who is leading the investigation for the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "We are continuing our appeal for information about this fatal stabbing. We believe that some witnesses to the fatal stabbing or the moments leading up to it have not yet come forward and we would urge them to make contact with police as soon as possible.
"We are particularly keen to trace Raza Khan who we believe has crucial information about what happened to Khalid."
Anyone with information is asked to call the police incident room on 020 8721 4054. To give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org
