"This was a devastating attack on two women in their homes".

The suspect, who was known to the two victims, was arrested shortly before 2pm and was taken to a north London police station, police said.

The Met Police have launched a double murder investigation and are looking for 27-year-old Joshua Cohen in connection with the stabbings.

Police are appealing for information on his whereabouts.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: 'He has mental health issues including paranoid schizophrenia and should not be approached by members of the public.

He is described as white male, 5ft 9ins tall, with short cropped hair and short beard/stubble.

Cohen recently shaved off his hair and eyebrows and was last seen wearing a red Nike hooded sweatshirt with a white logo on the chest.

He was also wearing white trainers and dark grey pants or tracksuit bottoms. "Likewise, if you spot Joshua Cohen please call police on 999".

Officers from the Met's Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating.

"Following a recent media appeal a discerning member of the public alerted police to a real time sighting and officers moved quickly to detain and arrest the man wanted for questioning", he said.

Police have urged anybody who saw anything in the area on Friday night to get in touch with investigators immediately.
