Commuters watched a horrifying scene unfold on Tuesday morning as a man was stabbed to death during rush hour near Morden Underground station in London. A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Shortly after 8:00am, police were called to Kendor Gardens to reports of an injured man believed to be in his 20s.

The man had suffered multiple stab wounds and could not be saved, according to the Metropolitan Police.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating the incident.

The police said the victim’s next of kin has been informed, but a post mortem examination and formal identification will be scheduled in “due course.”

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Reid said: "The stabbing occurred during the rush hour period and there would have been a number of people in the vicinity making their way to the train station. I am appealing for anyone who may have seen the stabbing or the events leading up to the incident to get in contact with us.

A man was arrested on suspicion of wasting police time and subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder. He currently remains in custody at a south London police station. Enquires continue,” the Met said in a statement.
