A  murder investigation has been launched following the death of a man in Fulham.

Police say they were called shortly before 6.30pm on Wednesday, October 16 to reports of a disturbance at an address in Stephendale Road in Sands End.

Police officers and London Ambulance Service found two men suffering stab wounds. 

The men were taken by ambulance to separate London hospitals.

A 49 year-old man died in hospital at around 6.30am on Thursday, 17 October. Officers believe they know the identity of the deceased, but are awating formal identification and confirmation that next of kin have been informed.

A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

The second man was discharged from hospital on Thursday and was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to a central London police station where he remains in custody.

A murder investigation has been launched and an incident room has opened at Belgravia Police Station under Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh of the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

DCI McHugh says: "This was a dispute between two men who were known to each other. At this time, we are not looking for any other suspect.

"I am appealing for anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious at around six o'clock or shortly after on Wednesday evening in Stephendale Road to contact the incident room.

" In particular, I want to hear from anyone who saw two white men arguing."

Any witnesses or anyone with information that may assist the investigation should call the incident room on 020 7321 7228. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
