A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 60-year-old man was found dead at his home.

Krasimir Kartikov, originally from Bulgaria, had suffered several injuries when he was found dead at his home in Whitehorse Road Croydon on Monday.

Scotland Yard said police were called by the London Ambulance Service on Monday at around 8.50am and a special post-mortem examination later gave multiple injuries as the cause of death.

Scotland Yard said that a 44-year-old man, who was arrested on Thursday evening, has been taken to a west London police station.

Detective Chief Inspector Helen Rance, who is leading the investigation, said: "Our investigation is moving quickly but we are keen to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to Krasimir after 4pm on the afternoon of Saturday, 11 January.

"We would also ask anyone who may have been in the Whitehorse Road area to think back as to whether they heard any kind of disturbance or saw anything unusual that Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday.

"Krasimir's family are understandably devastated at the death of their loved one and we are committed to finding out exactly what happened that night and bringing the person/s responsible to justice."
