A murder investigation has been launched after a man who was badly injured in an attack in the Isle of Dogs died yesterday — five months later.
Terrence Baker, 29, from Limehouse, was assaulted at Plevna Street in Cubitt Town in the early hours of June 18.
He was taken to hospital where he remained in a critical condition for five months, but died yesterday. His next of kin have been informed.
His death is now being investigated by detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on the day of the attack and charged with GBH with intent.
