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.
