Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the fatal stabbing of a 30-year-old man in north London.

Two men – aged 33 and 25 – and a woman – aged 24 – were arrested on Saturday.

The men remain in custody while the woman has been bailed to a date in mid-June, Barnet Police said.

Investigators have also named the victim as Olsi Kuka.

Mr Kuka was found with stab wounds in a flat off High Road in Barnet, north London, shortly before 3am on Wednesday.

Police had been called by paramedics after receiving reports of an injured man at the address.

Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, Mr Kuka was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later, officers said.

Police officers are in contact with the victim’s family and providing them with support.

A 35-year-old man was initially arrested in relation to the incident but was later released with no further action.

Officers continue to appeal for anyone with information about the alleged murder to come forward by calling 101 with the reference 655/11MAY or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
