Boy, 15, arrested over man's murder in Roehampton

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a man who died during a break-in.

The victim, believed to be in his late 30s, was found with serious injuries on Tuesday evening in Roehampton, south-west London.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and a post-mortem examination is due to take place later.

The teenager, who was arrested on Thursday night, remains in police custody.

Det Ch Insp Charlie King said officers were keeping an open mind about the motive for the murder.

He added: "Members of the public have already provided us with accounts of three young men seen loitering in the area prior to the incident.

"I am directly appealing to these young men to come forward and speak us."
