LONDON: Detectives investigating the killing of a man stabbed and shot at by thieves on a moped after refusing to hand over his Rolex watch have charged a man with murder.

Danny Pearce (31) was fatally stabbed in Greenwich, south-east London, in July 2017 by thieves who were alleged to have demanded he give them his Rolex watch.

Jordan Bailey-Mascoll (25) from Dartford, was arrested on Thursday and charged on Friday with murder.

He will appear in court on Saturday. A 21-year-old man who was also arrested in connection with Pearce’s murder remains under investigation.

Pearce, a 31-year-old builder from Bromley, was attacked at 12.15am while on his way home from a night out with his girlfriend at Oliver’s Jazz Club. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A postmortem gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

A £10,000 (€11,323) reward had been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killers.
