The victim, who hasn't yet been identified, was allegedly stabbed in East Dulwich, London, on Sunday morning, Mirror reports.

A man who was stabbed to death in south-east London has been named as 39-year-old Dennis Anderson.

He was treated by paramedics but pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 3am.

The assistant manager at the Payless Food and Wine off licence, Muhammad Khan, 35, said his cousin had been working when an argument erupted inside the store.

He said both men involved in the fight were black and in their 30s or 40s.

He said: "They had an argument about cigarettes". My cousin was here, he was manager.

"The guy with the knife asked the other for free cigarettes, like as a favour or something". Everyone was trying to stop him.

Another local business owner said, "The knife was huge, bigger than a kitchen knife".

He added: "We are always open late, but this is the first time".

While police say that enquiries into the circumstances of the attack are ongoing, witnesses have told The Sun that the victim, who has not been officially named, had had his "throat slit" with a six-inch blade in an argument over cigarettes.

Formal identification and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course, the force added. Police have appealed for information.
