A thirteen year old boy has become the fourth person arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the stabbing of Martin Thomas.

A 15 year old boy appeared at the Old Bailey earlier this week charged with murder. A 16 year old boy has been arrested and and is being detained on suspicion of murder. A 17 year old boy was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to a south London police station where he was later bailed to return on a date in early June pending further enquiries.

Mr Thomas was found with serious injuries at a property on Huntingfield Road in Roehampton, on Tuesday of last week (22nd April). The London Air Ambulance helicopter attended but he was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination revealed he died from a stab wound that punctured his lung.

Detective Chief Inspector Charlie King of the Homicide and Major Crime Command said: "We are appealing for potential witnesses who saw anyone suspicious or any suspicious activity around the address at this time to please come forward."

Anyone who can help should call the incident room on 020 8721 4205 or if you wish to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
