Detectives investigating the killing of a student in Teddington last weekend have arrested a man over an incident leading up to his death.

The 20-year-old was detained at his home address in south London on Friday night on suspicion of GBH and violent disorder after two men were assaulted near to the Royal Oak pub on Teddington High Street on November 10.

He was released on bail earlier today.

Police have linked this incident with the death of physical education student, Patrick Lawless, 20, who was found collapsed in Field Lane at about 0.30am on November 11. He died in hospital from head injuries.

Four men have been arrested and bailed in connection with his death.

Witnesses to either incident are asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4155 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
