Man, 38, arrested over murder of teacher Sabina Nessa

A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering primary school teacher Sabina Nessa.

The suspect was arrested at an address in Lewisham, south east London, and remains in custody, police said.

Friends say Sabina was on her way to a pub for a first date, when she was attacked on Friday at around 8.30pm in Cator Park, Kidbrooke, southeast London.

It should have been a five minute walk from her home in Greenwich, but she never made it to the The Depot bar.

Her body was discovered in the park by a dog walker under a pile of leaves at 5.30pm the following day.

Earlier police said they were trying to establish whether Sabina was attacked by a stranger and expressed concerns the killer could strike again.

The Metropolitan Police has released CCTV images of a man they wish to speak to, which show him walking in nearby Pegler Square on the evening Sabina was attacked.

It has also released an image of a silver vehicle captured in the Pegler Square area which detectives believe the man has access to, and urged anyone who recognises him or the vehicle to contact the force immediately.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: ‘Our team have been working tirelessly to find the person responsible for Sabina’s murder and this has included an extensive trawl of CCTV, work which remains ongoing.

‘We would ask anyone – especially those in Kidbrooke and the wider area of Lewisham and Greenwich – to take a careful look at these images to check whether you know who this man is or have seen him over recent days.

‘Any information as to his identity or whereabouts could be vital for our investigation so we are asking you to share this image far and wide to ensure as many people as possible see it.’
