A second Croydon man has been charged with murder and conspiracy to rob in connection with the death of a 22-year-old man in Bromley last Sunday (July 13).

Vishal Deowram, 18, of Thornton Heath was arrested yesterday (July 16), becoming the fourth man to be charged.

He joins Lance Slowley, 22, also of Thornton Heath; Marcus El-Alfy, 18, of Bromley; and Jordache Smith-Challis, 19, of West Norwood who have all been remanded in custody.

Afyon Saint-Hilaire of Bromley died from stab wounds following an incident outside McDonald’s restaurant at around 8.45pm.

The 22-year-old victim is believed to have attempted to drive away after the incident in Coniston Road, but crashed and collapsed from his injuries.

Paramedics battled to save him and he was given emergency surgery at the scene but had been too severely wounded during the incident.

A post mortem examination at Princess Royal University Hospital on Monday revealed Saint-Hilaire died from shock and massive blood loss.

Friends and family have paid tribute to him on social media sites.

A team from the Metropolitan Police’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are leading the investigation.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
