The car belonging to a man murdered in Lower Edmonton was vandalised just moments before his death.

Teon Palmer, 28, from Lower Edmonton, died from a single stab wound in Montagu Road at the junction with Goodwin Road on Saturday night.

His blue Vauxhall Astra had all four tyres slashed just before his death.

Up to seven black men, all wearing hooded tops or jackets, were seen fleeing from the area.

Police believe the vandals knew the car belonged to Mr Palmer.

Acting detective chief inspector Andy Yeats of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command said: "We know there were people in the area at the time of the assault on Teon Palmer.

"I would ask anyone who was in the area of Montagu Road and Goodwin Road, or the surrounding streets, to contact my team.

"I believe those who damaged the car knew it belonged to Teon. Did you see anyone hanging around the vehicle or an altercation in the vicinity of the vehicle?

"If you have witnessed anything, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact my team - your information could prove vital to this investigation."

Although police are waiting for formal identification of the 28-year-old victim, they believe it to be Mr Palmer.

No arrests have been made.
