A second arrest has been made in the ongoing investigation into the murder of a man in Clapham in 2017.

A spokesperson for the Met said that a man, aged 28, "B", was arrested on suspicion of murder and burglary on Tuesday, July 9.

He has since been released under investigation.

A 29-year-old man "A" was arrested on suspicion of murder on February 11 and was subsequently released under investigation earlier this year.

Officers from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are continuing to investigate the murder of Piotr Woroniecki, a Polish national, who was found unresponsive on Parma Crescent in Clapham on November 23, 2017.

He was pronounced dead at the scene; a post mortem examination gave the cause of death as "compression to the neck".

Police said that such an injury was "consistent with the victim being held in a headlock for a prolonged period."

During their investigations into Mr Woroniecki's death, the Met revealed that a "large quantity" of Class A drugs and almost £100,000 in cash was discovered at the property on Parma Crescent where he was found, leading them to suspect he may have been involved in criminal activity prior to his death.

Speaking after news of the second arrest emerged, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell, who is leading the investigation, said that he had been in "good spirits" when he was last seen in public and urged anyone with information to come forward.

"Piotr was last seen alive at 23:32hrs on Wednesday, 22 November 2017, at New Covent Garden Market where he appeared to be in reasonably good spirits.

"He was found by a member of the public at 05:00hrs on 23 November, some hours later, in Parma Crescent, which is approximately three miles in distance from New Covent Garden Market.

"A large quantity of Class A drugs and close to £100,000 in cash was found in Piotr's flat which leads us to believe he may have been involved in some form of criminality and that his death may be linked to an organised crime syndicate; however this has not yet been proven.

"I still want to hear from anyone who may have seen Piotr that night or knows anything about why he was killed," DCI Cranwell said.
