Police have launched a murder inquiry after a 28-year-old man died from a stab wound.
The victim has not been formally identified but officers are confident he is Teon Palmer, from the Lower Edmonton area of North London, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.
Officers were called at around 11.10pm on Saturday to reports of an assault on Montagu Road at the junction with Goodwin Road in Lower Edmonton.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made, police said.
A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out and next of kin has been informed.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident and believe a car belonging to Mr Palmer had all four of its tyres slashed in the moments leading up to the attack.
Up to seven black males, described as wearing hooded tops or jackets, were seen making off from the location, police said.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Andy Yeats, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, is leading the investigation.
He 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.
“A blue Vauxhall Astra car belonging to Teon Palmer was vandalised prior to the assault on him. 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.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0208 345 1570 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
