The two teenage boys arrested over the murder of a teenager in Woodford Green have been granted bail.

The two 17-year-olds were arrested on Saturday January 16 on suspicion of the murder of Munashe Charles Kutyauripo.

They have been bailed to report back to police in late February, while they make further enquiries.

Mr Kutyauripo was stabbed in the chest at around 9.40pm after a confrontation with four other teenagers.

He died at 10.45pm at Whipps Cross Hospital.

Detectives still want to speak to 16-year-old Aaron Tavares-Gaiete, who they are treating as a suspect.

Mr Tavares-Gaiete is black, 5ft10, slim, with facial hair. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded jacket with a yellow motif on the sleeve, dark coloured trousers and trainers, and carrying a distinctive black ‘man bag’ with a white Nike logo.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Lawson, of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “"Aaron has not been seen since the murder and I am appealing directly to his friends, if you are helping him by giving him somewhere to stay, lending him money or letting him use your Oyster card please do not stay silent any longer, get in touch with us and help us to find him.

"We understand that some may have concerns with speaking to the police but it is important that they do so and we can offer reassurance and support for those that can assist us with our enquiries."

Anyone with information or who knows of Aaron Alexander Tavares-Gaiete's whereabouts can call the incident room on 020 8358 0200 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
