An arrest has been made following the death of a man at a Papatoetoe home on Saturday night.

The man, named on Monday by police as 40-year-old Jima Shemaon Zaya, was found dead at a Carruth Road house at about 7pm on Saturday night.

Operation Mainstay was launched to investigate his death and senior sergeant Richard O'Connor said a 40-year-old man will be appearing in Manukau District Court on Monday, charged with Mr Zaya's murder.

Police and Victim Support are working with Mr Zaya's family as further enquiries continue into his death.

Mr O'Connor said police are keen to talk to two men who were at the address when Mr Zaya was assaulted. They were possibly driving a red sedan.
