A man has been found guilty of the murder of a 24-year-old who was stabbed to death through a car window in Clapham.

Abraham Kallon was killed after a night out with a friend at a bar in Clapham High Street at 4.55am on December 10, 2022.

After leaving, the pair began a conversation with a group of men and women and one of the men became hostile.

Abraham was stabbed by one of the men through an open car window.

They drove to Kings College Hospital where officers administered first aid before Abraham was treated by paramedics.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after.

He will be sentenced at the same court on November 23.

Extensive trawling of CCTV footage led to his conviction where Beckford was arrested a week later in Bexley. 

As part of the investigation, detectives searched another address linked to Beckford in Herne Hill.

A black jacket with Abraham’s blood was found which he was wearing on the night of the murder.

Detective Sergeant Jake Good from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command said: “Our thoughts remain with Abraham’s family and friends who have had to sit through a trial and listen to details of the night he was killed.

“The thorough work carried out during this investigation proved vital to linking Beckford with the scene. It was the key CCTV footage and DNA analysis of blood found on the defendant's clothes following the murder that led to the jury finding him guilty.

“Beckford now faces a lengthy prison sentenced for his actions.”

A post-mortem examination held on December 11 at Greenwich Mortuary gave the cause of Abraham’s death as stab injuries.
