Police have arrested a 37 year-old man suspected to have committed the murder.
Officials said police were working on the scene and leaving no stone unturned in establishing details behind the case.
“A large crime scene is in place, and is likely to be in place for some time.
“At the forefront of our enquiries is understanding what exactly has lead to these tragic circumstances, and we are doing everything we can to establish the facts,” a police official was quoted as saying.
The woman became the capital 64th murder victim since the start of 2019 after Yusuf Mohamed was also knifed to death in Shepherd’s Bush on Wednesday.
