DETECTIVES are appealing for witnesses to a stabbing in which a 26-year-old man was chased through a housing estate in East London on Friday evening and later died in the street.
Police were called at 6pm by ambulance paramedics trying to save Reggie Berko who they found lying bleeding on the pavement at Ormsby Street in Haggerston.
He died in the street minutes later from a single stab wound to the heart, according to post mortem findings at Poplar Mortuary the next day.
Reggie, who came from Stamford Hill, had made his way to Ormsby Street from a walkway under Fellows Court 200 yards from where he was found.
“He sought help from a passer-by saying he had been chased and stabbed,” said Det Chief Ins Ian Stevenson.
“We’re appealing to anyone who was in the area who may be able to help establish exactly where the attack took place or who might have seen someone being chased. We’re keeping an open mind about the motive.”
