A murder investigation has been launched following the fatal stabbing of a 17-year-old at a club in Reading.

Jordan Malutshi, from London, was stabbed in the heart at The Face Bar in Chatham Street, Reading shortly before 04:00am on Sunday 2 June.

Malutshi was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, but died of his injuries a short time later, Thames Valley Police confirmed.

A murder investigation has now been launched in what police are describing as an isolated incident.

Senior Investigating Officer Det Ch Insp Kevin Mahon, of the Major Crime Unit, said: "This was an isolated incident in which a young man needlessly lost his life.

"We have a team of detectives working on the case and are committed to carrying out a full and thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to this tragic incident.

"We know there were a large number of people in the Face Bar at the time of the incident and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information which could assist our ongoing inquiry, to call us."

A post-mortem examination was carried out by a Home Office pathologist earlier this afternoon and established the cause of death as haemorrhage caused by a stab wound to the heart.

It is not known what area of London Malutshi is from.

Chatham Street, which was closed following the incident, has now been reopened to traffic.
