My hero - the home defender
A 78-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder after a suspected burglar was stabbed to death has been bailed.
The man, named locally as Richard Osborn-Brooks, found two intruders in South Park Crescent, Hither Green, south-east London, early on Wednesday.
A 37-year-old man, armed with a screwdriver, forced the homeowner into his kitchen where a struggle ensued and the suspect was stabbed, the Met said.
Mr Osborn-Brooks has been bailed until May pending further enquiries.
