By Crime Reporter in Crime

POLICE investigating the murder of Bromley man Danny Pearce have issued images of two men they would like to trace.

Pearce, 31, was stabbed in King William Walk, Greenwich in the early hours of July 15 and pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, despite efforts to revive him.

Detectives have now released images of two people they would like the public’s help to trace, while officers would also like to hear from anyone who has come across a silver Rolex watch, which was stolen from Danny in the attack.

Detective Inspector Jo Sidaway, who is leading the investigation, said: "We believe that Mr Pearce was approached on King William Walk by two suspects on a moped.

"One suspect is believed to have been in possession of what appeared to be a firearm, the other a knife.

"During an altercation Danny was stabbed and a firearm was discharged. The suspects fled the scene on the moped. Danny sought help at a nearby address; he was pronounced dead there.

"We believe that Danny’s Rolex watch was stolen in the attack, and one line of enquiry is that his death was the result of a violent robbery. If you have seen this watch under suspicious circumstances, please get in contact with us.

"We are also releasing images of two men we are eager to trace and speak to. If you have any information that could help us, we would urge you to come forward as soon as possible."
