Four men have been arrested by detectives investigating the murder of a teenager from Brentford.

17-year-old Abdirashid Mohamoud was stabbed to death in Union Lane, Isleworth on Friday, 22 March last year.

This Thursday (13 February), officers made arrests at various addresses. A 23-year-old man from Osterley was detained on suspicion of murder. A 42-year-old man from Isleworth was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after presenting himself at Acton Police Station following arrest enquiries at his home address. A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder at Kingston Crown Court after he was produced from HMP Wandsworth where he is currently detained for separate matters. The arrested men were all taken to a central London police station and then bailed to a date in late March.

Two other males aged 22 and 23 were previously arrested on suspicion of murder. They were released under investigation last April.
