Sabina Nessa died five minutes from her home in Kidbrooke last Friday evening. She worked at Rushey Green Primary School, and was walking to meet a friend in a pub when she was attacked in Cator Park.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering teacher Sabina Nessa – as police issue CCTV images of another man they wish to speak to over her death.
The 38-year-old suspect was arrested at an address in Lewisham and is currently in custody for questioning.
It is the second arrest in relation to Ms Nessa’s murder. A man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of murder and released under investigation, the Metropolitan Police said previously.
The CCTV images are of another man detectives wish to speak to in relation to the murder. The stills show him walking in Pegler Square, SE3, on the evening Ms Nessa was attacked.
The force has also released an image of a silver vehicle they believe the man had access to, which was also seen in the area. Police have urged anyone who recognises the man and vehicle to contact them immediately.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Our team has been working tirelessly to find the person responsible for Sabina’s murder and this has included an extensive trawl of CCTV, work which remains ongoing.
Ms Nessa, who taught at Rushey Green Primary School, was walking to meet a friend in a pub when she was attacked in Cator Park in southeast London at around 8.30pm last Friday.
