A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a cab driver was found stabbed to death in his car in north London.

Gabriel Bringye, 37, was discovered slumped with a suspected knife wound in the parked vehicle in Tottenham at about 7.20pm on Wednesday.

Medics battled to save him but he was pronounced dead at the scene at 8pm.

The teenager was arrested on Friday afternoon on suspicion of murder. He was further arrested on suspicion of robbery in relation to a separate offence and remains in custody.

Mr Bringye, who lived locally, was a Romanian national who is said have been planning his wedding for later this year.

A friend told MailOnline: “It’s an awful tragedy. He was the nicest, most gentle human being you could meet. He wouldn’t harm a fly. We are all in shock.”

A post-mortem was due to take place on Friday.

In a previous appeal for witnesses, Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, said: “We are still in the early stages of trying to establish what happened on Jarrow Road on Wednesday evening and we are still trying to establish the motive for this attack.

“Gabriel, who worked as a private hire driver, was found fatally injured inside his car. We need to know why he was there, and who else was present.

“Were you in the vicinity of Jarrow Road from 6.30pm that evening? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously? If you were driving in the local area and have dash cam footage, please check it to see if you captured something that might help our investigation.

“It is vital that we gather every piece of evidence so that we can identify who is responsible for taking Gabriel’s life.”
