They are being supported by specially trained officers, the police said.

No arrests have been made at this stage and a crime scene remains in place at Hamilton Crescent. A mandatory referral will be made in the case to the IOPC by the Met’s Department of Professional Standards, the police said, as is routine in cases where there has been prior police contact.

Superintendent Matt Cray, who leads policing in Harrow, said he is “confident” there is no wider risk to the community in Harrow.

He said: “This is a devastating incident, and our thoughts are with Robert’s family and loved ones.

“This will have a significant impact on how the community feels about their safety and there will be enhanced patrols in the area over the next few days to respond to any concerns people may have”.

Officers have urged anyone with dashcam footage, or any other information, to contact the police as it can help with the investigation.

Supt Cray added: “The team of detectives who are investigating Robert’s death are working hard to establish what happened, and I would ask that anyone who has not yet come forward with information, which could help their enquiries, does so without delay.”

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, who is leading the enquiries, added that they believe the assault took place inside a house and enquiries are ongoing to determine how Robert died.

He said: “At this time, I am interested to hear from anyone who was travelling in Hamilton Crescent or the Kingsway around the time of the offence, and who may have dash cam footage to share.

“This would have been between the times of 13:45hrs and 14:15hrs on Monday 26 February.

“Even if you didn’t see anything significant, your dash cam footage may tell a different story, so please do contact my team of detectives.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote CAD3619/26Feb.
