Two men have been charged with robbery and murder following the death of a teenager in Peterborough.

James Lawrence Pettit, 21, of Restormel Close, Bedford, and Dino Fumo, 23, of St Michael’s Road, Bedford, will appear at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court this morning (Monday) in connection with the incident that happened at just after 2.30pm on Thursday (April 10).

Officers were called to Russell Street following reports that a man had suffered serious injuries after being involved in an incident with a car.

The 18-year-old, Mohammed Haroon Sanghar – known as Haroon – of Cromwell Road, was taken to Peterborough City Hospital where his condition deteriorated and he died at about 12.45pm on Friday.

Detective Inspector Jon McAdam, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, who is leading the investigation, said: “The incident which resulted in Haroon’s death happened in broad daylight in a busy area of Peterborough so I am confident there are people who saw it but haven’t contacted police so far. Anyone who was in the Cromwell Road, Gladstone Street or Lincoln Road area may have seen a vehicle being driven erratically and I would urge them to come forward.

“Incidents of this type are rare in Peterborough and we are treating it as an isolated event. However, there will be extra patrols in the area today to provide some reassurance for local people.”

INFORMATION: Anyone with information should contact the force’s Major Crime Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
