Police investigating the murder of 18-year-old Stefan Appleton in Islington have released CCTV images of two young people they want to speak to.
The pair are seen leaving the scene on a moped, with a learner plate underneath the license plate.
In a statement, the Metropolitan police said:
Stefan was in Nightingale Park with friends, when two youths pulled up on a moped.
The pillion passenger on the moped attacked him - stabbing him a number of times with a large bladed knife before making off on the moped Nightingale Road.
After leaving Nightingale Road the moped turned left into Ashby Grove and then out on to Essex Road, Islington.

There were gusts of up to 30 miles an hour in the capital today - and nowhere more obvious than in Islington, where the wind brought a huge tree down into the middle of the street.... and onto an Aston Martin.
The police were called just after 3pm when the tree was blown over on Elia Street - crushing a number of parked cars. It also damaged a lamp post and scaffolding outside a house.
Islington Council had to bring in tree surgeons to get rid of it, but thankfully no one was hurt.
From today, motorists in the boroughs of Westminster and Islington who leave their engines idling could be fined. Traffic marshals will be able to hand out £20 fines to drivers who leave the engine running while stuck in traffic.
The policy aims to cut air pollution, which London Mayor Boris Johnson claims is linked to the deaths of thousands of Londoners each year. Traffic marshals will firstly ask drivers to switch their engines off, with fines issued as a last resort.
The property was put on the market at almost double the price it sold for in 2001.Read the full story ›
