Victim of stabbing incident in Bury St Edmunds has died

The victim of a stabbing incident in Bury St Edmunds has died, police revealed late this afternoon, Tuesday, June 22.

Officers were called at 03.55am in the early hours of 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 a serious stab wound. The victim was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by ambulance but had 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 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, July 13, and Friday, July 16, respectively, pending further enquiries.
