A teenager has been re-arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing in Ipswich last month and detectives are also appealing to trace a potentially important witness.
Officers were called to Turin Street just after 1.50pm on Sunday 16th December to reports that a man had been stabbed.
Daniel Saunders, aged 32 and originally from Surrey, died at the scene of the incident. A Home Office post-mortem examination concluded that the cause of death was as a result of a single stab wound to the abdomen.
A 17-year-old boy from Bury St Edmunds was re-arrested on suspicion of murder late last night, Wednesday 9th January, and was taken into police custody for questioning by detectives.
He was previously arrested in the Clacton area of Essex on Thursday 20th December and subsequently released on bail after being questioned.
Detectives are also issuing an appeal to trace a woman who stopped at the scene shortly after the attack took place and is described by other witnesses as assisting with delivering first aid to the victim.
She is described as aged in her 30s or 40s, speaking with a local accent and driving a people carrier with a sliding door. Officers are very keen for this woman to come forward as she may have information that could assist the inquiry.
Three other teenagers also arrested on 20th December remain on bail or under investigation as follows:
An 18-year-old man from Colchester arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender was released on police bail until 18th January; a
17-year-old boy from the Colchester area; and a 15-year-old boy from Bury St Edmunds; also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender were released under investigation.
Three people - two men, aged 44 and 39, and a woman aged 31 – who were arrested in connection with the incident on Sunday
16 December, are due to answer police bail tomorrow, Friday 11th January.
Detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity of Turin Street, Kenyon Street and Wherstead Road on
Sunday 16th December, and witnessed any suspicious persons or activity, to make contact. This includes anyone driving through the area who has a dash cam fitted in their vehicle.
