The road in which a 50-year-old man was found murdered this week has been described as a “pleasant, quiet residential street” by neighbours.
Residents of Cumberland Park, in Acton, have spoken of their shock following the death of a 50-year-old man at a flat in the street on Tuesday (March 24).
Officers have identified the victim but have not yet released details. Next of kin have yet to be informed.
Neighbour Nigel Perkins, a retired lecturer, said he knew there had been a major incident on Tuesday evening at around 9.50pm because he saw a police car on the street.
Speaking to getwestlondon on Thursday (March 26), he said: “I have lived here for 20 years.
“It’s a very pleasant, quiet residential street.
“I do not know anything about anyone who lives there [in the flat].
“The place is now empty because it’s a crime scene.”
A man was charged with murder on Thursday morning, in connection with the death.
Giuseppe Lomedico, 54, of no fixed address, was due to appear in Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Thursday afternoon.
Two other men were also arrested on suspicion of murder. One, a 50-year-old, has been released on police bail to return on a date in mid April.
The second, a 44-year-old man, remains in custody while ongoing enquiries continue.
