A man has been charged with murder after a father-of-one was stabbed in west London.
Harley-Dee Thompson, 27, will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday accused of killing 46-year-old Dariusz Wolosz.
He faces a further charge of possessing an offensive weapon in relation to the incident in the early hours of Tuesday, the Metropolitan Police said.
Mr Wolosz, a Polish national, is believed to have been attacked following a row with a group of young men on Tavistock Road in West Drayton.
The victim’s daughter said on social media that the attack happened after her father went to the shops to buy a packet of cigarettes, the Evening Standard reports.
She added: ‘I want everybody to remember him as a lovely and warm person even if he was a stranger for you. Love you dad so much.’
The family of Darius Wolosz,46, are ‘deeply distraught’ following his death in the early hours of last Tuesday
Officers were called to reports of an injured man on the busy High Street in Yiewsley at 12.12am and despite the best efforts of emergency services he was pronounced dead at 12.43am.
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as stab wounds to the groin and chest.
Mr Wolosz’s family are ‘distraught’ as homicide detectives from the Met’s specialist crime command continue to investigate.
An online fundraiser set up by family friend Gemma Hunt and has already raised over £2,000.

She wrote: ‘[Darius’] distraught wife as a result of this horrendous act is now a widow and a single mother left to raise their only child alone.
‘I’m sure as a community we can all come together and help this family, who have lost a husband and father so tragically.
‘No money in the world could ease their pain but if everyone could donate something to help, it will give them the chance to mourn their loss without the stress and worry of funeral costs and living expenses.’
A 13-year-old boy who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday in connection with the incident has been released on bail to a date in early February.
