A murder investigation has been launched after a man died weeks after being assaulted during a possible robbery in Wood Green.
Ibrahim Pertek, 52, was attacked in an alley next to Wood Green Library at 1.10am on July 16.
Officers attended the scene an hour and a half later where they found Mr Pertek with a serious head injury. He was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Detective inspector Andy Griffin, said: “We are asking for anyone who was around the area of Wood Green High Road at this time to contact police, particularly any motorist who was passing while using a dash cam.
“We believe Mr Pertek was seen by people prior to him being injured, and we want those people to come forward and speak to us. We are releasing a photo of Mr Pertek and I would ask people to look at it carefully and contact police if you remember seeing him.
“If you have any information that could assist, please come forward, it could help police and Mr Pertek’s family understand what happened that night.
