Police release video of two suspects fleeing Ronaldo Scott murder scene amid fresh appeal for information

Detectives investigating the murder of Ronaldo Scott in Angell Town have released footage of two suspects fleeing the scene amid a fresh public appeal for information.

Mr Scott, aged 21, was knifed by two men who jumped out of a car and chased him in a daylight attack on Monday September 4.

He staggered to a playground on Morrison Road close to his home and died in front of his mother despite efforts to save him by paramedics and police, witnesses said.

Metropolitan Police recovered CCTV from the area and on Sunday released a video of two men, dressed in black with face coverings, running away after the violent attack in broad daylight.

The force is urging anyone who recognises the suspects or saw them around 12.08pm on Monday to contact police.

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn who leads the investigation said: “We know there are more people that we still haven’t heard from and we really need those people to get in touch.

“If you saw, or have heard anything since, no matter how insignificant you might think it is, at the very least your information could add certainty to details that we haven’t yet confirmed.

“I know that some people don’t want to speak to the police and I understand why. You may be frightened or have had problems or a bad experience with police in the past.

“Please know that you don’t have to speak directly to us - there are two ways you can provide us with information and footage that is important for our investigation without giving us your details.

“You can call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously. They will not pass your details onto us and they are not part of the police – they are completely independent.

“You can submit video footage from mobile phones, CCTV camera’s, doorbells or dash-cams or information via this link for the investigation - Public Portal ( You can do this anonymously or choose to submit your details and we will not contact you if you don’t want us to.”

Mr Scott’s family continue to be supported by specialist family liaison officers.

Neighbours said the young man, known by the street name of Skengroy, was stabbed multiple times and his sister raised the alarm as he lay dying at the gate of the park.

He had recently started a course in construction and was looking forward to a career in the building trade.

Ronaldo Scott’s aunt said: “He was a loving caring family man with his future ahead of him.

“He was learning to drive and just last week went on a family camping trip which he loved.”

Borough Commander for Lambeth and Southwark, Detective Chief Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh added: “Another young man has lost his life to knife crime, and my thoughts at this time are with Ronaldo’s family, friends and our local community.

“I know that the local community will be hurting about the loss of another young man.

“Officers from my Community Engagement team will be conducting patrols in the local area, so local people can expect to see more officers in uniform. Please speak to these officers if you have any concerns.”
