Donnell Rhule stabbing: Bromley man charged with murder

A 26-year-old man from Bromley has been charged with the murder of Donnell Rhule who was stabbed to death in West Dulwich on Wednesday.

Mr Rhule, 18, from south east London, was found suffering from stab wounds on Seeley Drive, SE21, on July 8.

Despite the efforts of police and paramedics, the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene and a murder investigation was launched.

On July 10, an unnamed 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the murder.

Now, the Met Police has announced that Eren Inniss, 26, of Turpington Lane, Bromley, has been charged with the murder of Donnell Rhule.

He remains in custody and is to appear before Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 13 July.

Homicide detectives leading the investigation believe Donnell was attacked on Lyall Avenue before making his way to a parade of shops on Seeley Drive.

A post-mortem examination held at Greenwich Mortuary on July 10 gave cause of death as an incised wound to the chest, consistent with a knife wound.

Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove, Commander of the Met’s Central South Command Unit, said previously: “I am saddened to hear of this tragic murder and our thoughts are with Donnell’s family, friends and the wider community.

“We are committed to bringing them the justice they deserve and we are supporting the Specialist Crime Command who lead the investigation.
