|Ealing Common Murder Victim Named As Man From Hanwell|
Osvaldo Carvalho died after fight near Uxbridge Road
The man stabbed to death near Ealing Common on Tuesday evening (24 September) has been named as 22-year-old Osvaldo Carvalho, from Hanwell. This brings the number of murders that have taken place in the borough of Ealing to four in just over a month.
It is believed that Osvaldo and two friends had arrived in the area by car before heading over to a small green area known as Twyford Crescent Gardens. There was an altercation with another group of men which resulted in the victim and his friends running away across Uxbridge Road. Osvaldo was then chased by the other group and suffered stab injuries.
One person who was arrested on suspicion of affray, has since been released from custody and will face no further action. He is being treated as a witness to the investigation.
Despite the best efforts of medics and the arrival of an air ambulance, Osvaldo was pronounced dead at the scene at 6.48pm.
Formal identification is yet to take place, but the team investigating the fatal stabbing have named the victim as Osvaldo.
