POLICE have launched a murder probe after a man was found on the side of the road believed to be in cardiac arrest.
Mohamed Muhiyidin, 28, was found lying on the pavement at 6am this morning in Harlington, West London.
Police were called to Sipson Lane when a motorist noticed a person on the side of the road.
Emergency services rushed to the scene and found the 28-year-old, believed to be suffering a cardiac arrest.
Despite their best efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene at 7am.
His death is being treated as suspicious – and cops have now launched a murder investigation.
A post mortem is set to take place, but cops said that they are confident the man is 28-year-old Mohamed Muhiyidin of Southall, Ealing.
Detective Inspector Melanie Pressley, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “We do not yet know how Mohamed came to be lying injured at the side of the road this morning, but there will be people out there who do know.
“I would appeal to anyone with information about this incident to come forward. I would also ask anyone who knew Mohamed and may know why someone would wish to do him harm, to speak to us.
“In addition, I would appeal to anyone who drove along Sipson Lane on Saturday or in the early hours of Sunday morning to check any dash cam footage they may have to see if it captured anything unusual.
“A family is grieving after hearing the terrible news that their loved one has been murdered. We will do everything we can to find out who is responsible, but we need the public’s help.”
