The 20-year-old who was killed at The Brewery last week has been locally named as Hosam Eisa.

Police were called at around 4.30pm on Thursday by the London Ambulance Service to reports of a stabbing near the Brewery Shopping Centre in Waterloo Road.

A 20-year-old man was found in the car park at end of the shopping centre next to the cinema and restaurants, suffering a stab wound.

He was taken to hospital but died about an hour later.

The area was immediately locked down by police as the Homicide and Major Crime Command investigated and no one was allowed in or out.

Che Pullen, 19, of Loom Grove, Romford and a 17-year-old from the Romford area were charged on Friday, May 19.

Hosam, originally from Egypt, moved to Mantova, Italy, in 2002 with his family before they moved to Dagenham last year.

Friends have taken to social media to pay tribute to him, describing Hosam as “funny” and a “good brother”.

Gjergji Hoco said: “Hi my friend Hosam Ali Eisa, news of your death was a shock for everyone who knew you.

“I’m proud to have known you and be your friend.

“I’ll always remember you with your contagious smile and the joy that you brought to everyone with your kindness and desire to make everyone smile.

“Miss you so much but I will never forget you.”
