Cops hunt man ‘trying to hide red item up his sleeve’ that could be weapon used to attack teacher

COPS probing the killing of Sabina Nessa are hunting a man who they believe was trying to hide a red item up his sleeve – as it could be the weapon used in the attack.

Officers are desperately searching for a man spotted on CCTV following the death of the much-loved primary school teacher, 28.

And in an update this afternoon, detectives say they urgently need to find a “reflective item” the man is clutching in the footage.

They are keeping an “open mind” about whether it was used during the attack on Sabina.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, chillingly warned that the man “must” be found.

“I continue to appeal for any witnesses and anyone with information to contact police and share what they know,” he said.

“People in the Kidbrooke area last Friday may recall seeing this man carrying a red reflective object, and possibly trying to conceal it up his sleeve. If so, please call police.

“Please share the CCTV footage on social media and, especially if you have connections to London or Kent, show the image to family members and friends who may not have seen it.
