A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after a man was stabbed to death near a railway station in south London.

Daniel Graham was attacked near East Dulwich station after trouble flared at an 18th birthday party at the Dulwich Hamlet FC clubhouse on Saturday night.

Police said Mr Graham, 18, was chased on to the number 176 bus in Dog Kennel Hill by up to six youths. As he got off the bus to escape he was stabbed.

A 13-year-old boy arrested over a linked nearby shooting has been bailed.

Officers were called at about 0010 GMT on 29 January to reports of an assault.

The victim was attacked and knifed in full view of bus passengers and passing pedestrians.

He managed to get back on to the bus and passengers called 999.

Mr Graham, who lived in East Dulwich, was taken to a south London hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 0215 GMT.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as stab wounds.

Detectives are linking the incident to the nearby shooting of a 14-year-old boy, who arrived at a south London hospital with a bullet-wound to the leg.

He remains in a stable condition.

Det Ch Insp Dave Manning said: "East Dulwich is a busy area on a Friday night and I am sure that many people witnessed both incidents.

"I need to hear from any of the passengers on the 176 bus or any pedestrians who were in the vicinity."
