The suspected killer of a moped delivery driver who was stabbed to death in a road rage attack may have fled to Austria.

Deliveroo and Uber Eats rider Takieddine Boudhane, 30, was involved in a fatal confrontation with a van driver in Finsbury Park, north London, on January 3.

He had been riding his motorcycle before a disagreement with the driver of a white VW Caddy panel-type van, who is believed to have stabbed him to death.

Detectives have not yet named the fugitive but said he may have fled to Austria the morning after the killing.

Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli, police commander for Islington, the London borough where the killing took place, told the Islington Tribune:

There is a person of interest who we believe flew to Austria. I'm confident this investigation will come to a conclusion.

The fatal stabbing of Mr Boudhane, an Algerian national who had been living in the UK for about three years, sparked the Metropolitan Police's first murder investigation of 2020.

Officers were called to reports of a man stabbed in Lennox Road at about 6.50pm on January 3. London Ambulance Service also attended the scene, where Mr Boudhane was pronounced dead at 7.42pm.
