Local man arrested and charged in 'Nightstalker' case [updated]

Sky News has identified the man arrested in connection with more than 100 attacks against older people, dating back to the 1990s. The serial attacker became known as the Nightstalker and a man has now been arrested and charged in connection with the case [please note, there is some suggestion that the man in question actually lives over the border in Southwark]:

Sky News understands he is Delroy Grant, from Brockley, south-east London...

He was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning following a pre-planned operation, the spokesman added.

Sky News understands the man was approached by police as he returned to a car in London's south-east.

Sources have also told Sky the suspect in custody had been questioned before "many years ago" over the attacks and eliminated from the investigation.

The Sun adds that:

For almost two decades the Night Stalker has preyed on the capital's elderly - breaking into homes in Dulwich, Orpington, Norwood, Downham, Lee, West Wickham, Bickley and Shirley.

Neighbours in Brockley, South East London - where Grant lives with his wife and sons Jason, 20, and Louis, 11 - were stunned at his arrest last night.

They described him as a "devoted" husband to Jehovah's Witness Jennifer - a former classroom assistant who for the past four years has been wheelchair-bound with multiple sclerosis.

The Telegraph now reports that:

The 52-year-old father was remanded in police custody after a brief hearing at Greenwich magistrates court. He is facing 22 charges including five rapes, six indecent assaults and 11 burglaries since 1992.
