(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after police found two dead women in his home.

The banker who was arrested on suspicion of a double murder in Hong Kong, has been identified as a 29-year-old Rurik Jutting.

Jutting, who is originally from Britain and a graduate of the University of Cambridge, reportedly worked at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong.

Jutting was arrested by police after the bodies of the two women were discovered in his high-rise apartment. Officers found the two dead women, who are believed to have been killed within days of each other.

One woman was found dead inside the apartment and the second woman’s body was found in a suitcase on the porch of the apartment.

The women were identified as a 25 year old from Indonesia and a 30 year old from the Philippines. The latest victim was seen on surveillance video walking to the suspect’s home on the 31st-floor just before midnight.

Police have contacted the local bars in an attempt to identify the woman with whom the victims may have worked as strippers or as prostitutes.

Police were called by the banker about 3:30 a.m. The woman found dead inside the apartment is believed to have been killed shortly before he made the call.
