A father was fatally stabbed in front of his 3-year-old daughter Thursday night in Britain as he went to visit his wife and newborn son in the hospital.

The man was at a bus stop in Croydon, South London, when he got into an argument with an old acquaintance.

During a struggle the man, who is originally from Ghana but has lived in Britain for many years, was stabbed.

Last night a 22-year-old man went to a police station in Croydon. He has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The victim, who has not yet been formally identified but was described as in his thirties, was treated by an ambulance crew at the scene before being taken to a South London hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a shocking attack in a public place in the early evening. The victim’s three-year-old daughter was with him when he was attacked, though fortunately she wasn't physically injured. Even more tragically, his partner had given birth to a son just that morning.

"The investigation is at a very early stage and I'm keeping an open mind about the circumstances of the attack at this point. A number of witnesses have already come forward but I believe there are still people with information we need to speak to and I urge those people to get in touch," Lyons said.
