A MAN has appeared in court charged with murder following an incident in Waterloo. 

Menelaos Aligizakis, 43, suffered serious head injuries after being attacked at a bus stop in Waterloo Road, near the train station, at 2.45am on Saturday (January 3).

Paramedics were called but Mr Aligizakis, originally from Athens, Greece, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem the following day gave his cause of death as blunt force trauma to the head.

Police have appealed for information, particularly from passengers on a route 139 bus that was opposite the stop at the time of the attack.

Mark Dwayne Patten, 30, of Galpins Road, Thornton Heath, has been charged with murder and appeared in custody at Camberwell Magistrates' Court today (Monday)

He is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.

The investigation is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Will Reynolds, of the Met's homicide and major crime command.

"My condolences are with the family of Mr Aligzakis at this very difficult time," he said. 

"We have previously said this is a very busy part of London frequented by both commuters and those on a night out. We are keen to hear from people who were in the area or passing by at the time of this incident who may have seen or heard something that could help our investigation.

"A number of witnesses have already come forward and we are grateful to them for doing so.

"However, there was a route 139 bus that pulled up on the opposite side of the road to where the attack took place at about 2.45am. A number of passengers are known to have left the bus at this point. I am appealing to those passengers in particular to contact police."

Any witnesses and or anyone with information are urged call the incident room on 020 8721 4205 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
