A 23-year-old man charged with the murder of a 52-year-old man in Selsdon has been remanded in custody after appearing before Camberwell Green magistrates today (Saturday). Ephraim Norman of Thornton Heath will appear in court again at the Old Bailey on Tuesday. Norman was arrested at the scene of a stabbing in Selsdon Park Road on Thursday night and police have said they were not actively seeking anyone else in connection with the incident. Officers have also said there is nothing to suggest the victim and the suspect knew each other. Police were called to the scene at around 10.30pm on Thursday after the reports of a stabbing and the incident was also attended by the London Ambulance Service and the Air Ambulance. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, despite efforts by paramedics to revive him. Police believe they know the identity of the victim but no formal identification had yet been made. Next of kin have been informed. A post mortem which took place yesterday (Friday) revealed the man had died from multiple stab wounds. The Homicide and Major Crime Command is investigating and an incident room has opened under Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Gwyn. A 50-year-old woman who lives opposite the scene told the Advertiser: "They [the paramedics] worked on him for ages. "I watched out of my bedroom window and it was really shocking." Anyone with information that may assist police should contact the incident room on 0208 721 4805 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
