A man in his 40s has died following a stabbing in Bury St Edmunds over the weekend.
Officers were called at 3.55am on Sunday, June 20, 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 wound. The victim was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by ambulance but has now sadly died as a result of his injury.
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 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.
