Mr Cohen has mental health issues including paranoid schizophrenia. The Met said he should not be approached.

Detectives added that he had recently shaved off his hair and eyebrows.

No arrests have been made.

Next-of-kin have been informed and post-mortem examinations will be carried out soon.

Det Insp Ian Lott said: "This was a devastating attack on two women in their home.

"The individual we are seeking was known to them and from all the information we have, acted alone. I would urge anyone who saw anything in the local area at the time of the attack to get in touch with investigators immediately. Likewise, if you spot Joshua Cohen please call police on 999."

Det Ch Supt Simon Rose from Barnet added that he wanted to reassure residents that officers were doing everything they could to find him.

"High-visibility foot patrols have been stepped up in the area and police will be on hand to listen and respond to community concerns," he added.
