Police are treating the death of a man at a South Auckland house as suspicious.

Officers were called to the property in Great South Road, Manurewa, about 10am on Friday after the body of a 55-year-old man was found by his flatmate in a sleepout at the back of the house.

The house has been cordoned off.

Police say the man shows evidence of injury and a post-mortem would take place on Friday.
