A 21-year-old woman who was stabbed to death in an alleyway near a school in London has been named.

Police have identified her as Ania Jedrkowiak, who was from Poland.

She was found with stab wounds in an alleyway in South Ealing, west London, shortly after midnight on Tuesday and died at the scene.

Officers said they are speaking with Ms Jedrkowiak’s family and they are being supported by specialist officers.

A 20-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder has been released with no further action.

A 29-year-old was arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday and remains in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, who is leading the investigation, said officers believed the second arrest “is a very significant one in this investigation. The victim and suspect were known to each other.

“We are examining CCTV and speaking to any witnesses who have come forward… In particular we would urge anyone who lives or was travelling in the area of South Ealing Road, between 11.15pm on Monday, 16 May and 1am the next day, or anyone who has CCTV or a doorbell camera, or a dash cam, to check it for anything that appears out of the ordinary.”

A cordon has been set up near the Rose and Crown pub in the area, as well as near Grange School, Grange Nursery and Grange Pre-School.

Chief Superintendent Sean Wilson, who is in charge of policing for west London, including Ealing, said: “This is a tragic incident that I know has come as a shock to the local community.”

He added: “I am particularly mindful of the proximity of this incident to a local school – something which meant the school had to remain closed on Tuesday.

“I know parents will be apprehensive and I’d like to reassure them that we are working with the school to make sure children can continue their learning with minimal disruption.”

Anyone with information can call 101 or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. The reference for the incident is 77/17MAY.
