A 27-year-old Moorabbin man has been charged with murder over the death of a Greek man on a street in Melbourne’s south-east on Tuesday.
The 46-year-old Greek man was found on the side of the road at the corner of Little Avenue and Widdop Crescent, Hampton East, just after midday on Tuesday with upper body injuries.
Emergency services performed CPR, but he died at the scene.
Homicide detectives were quick to establish a crime scene, using police cars and tape to cordon off a section of Widdop Crescent, between the corners of Little Ave and Cooke Ave.
According to The Herald Sun, detectives charged a 27-year-old man with one count of murder on Thursday afternoon.
A Victoria Police statement said the attack was believed to be random and the two parties did not know each other.
The charged man, who was already in custody on an unrelated matter, will face Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
