He is due to appear before Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, July 31.

Mr Jerome, 23, from Thornton Heath, was attacked at around 8.20pm on Wednesday, July 21.

His family are being supported by specialist officers as the investigation into the circumstances continues, the Met said.

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn, who is leading the investigation, said: "Brixton Road near to the Tube station is a busy area of London and there were many people in the street, on buses and in cars yesterday evening.

"We have spoken to a number of witnesses already and I am asking for anyone who was in the area and who may have seen anything, or have footage on their phone or dash cam, to please contact us.”
