    Police said the victim and suspect were believed to have been known to one another.

    A man in his 20s has been arrested on suspicion of murder over the Brixton death.

    At 18:36 BST officers were called to a home in Sudbourne Road, where a woman in her 30s had been attacked.

    She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her next-of-kin have been informed, police said.

    In the separate attack near Alexandra Palace, Haringey, a 19-year-old man was arrested near to the scene and taken into custody at a north London police station.
