Police have confirmed that a man who was the victim of a stabbing in Bury St Edmunds at the weekend has died.
Officers were called at 3.55am in the early hours of Sunday 20th June, to reports that a man had been seriously injured following an incident on Winsford Road in the town.
Police located a man in his 40s in the road having sustained serious stab wounds. The victim was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by ambulance but had now sadly died as a result of his injuries. The man’s next of kin have been notified.
A Home Office post-mortem examination will take place later this week.
Early enquiries lead detectives to believe that this was an isolated incident and as such, there is not any wider threat to the local community.
Shortly after the incident, police arrested a man in his 50s on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and he was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning. On Sunday afternoon, a second man aged in his teens was also arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and was also taken into custody.
Both men have been released on police bail until Tuesday 13 July and Friday 16 July respectively, pending further enquiries.
