Detectives investigating the murder of a Manchester man in Rhyl have been granted more time to question ten people.
Patrols have been stepped up in the town following the fatal stabbing of a 37 year-old man at a house on Prince Edward Avenue in the early hours of Sunday morning. Another three men are in hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Five males are being held on suspicion of murder, including four teenage boys – including two 16 year-olds, a 15 year-old and a 17 year-old – and a 43 year-old man. Another five men from outside North Wales are being questioned on suspicion of affray and wounding.
Llandudno magistrates gave officers an extra thirty-six hours to detain the suspects, who are now being held at St Asaph police station. The identity of the victim has not yet been released.
Superintendent Sian Beck of North Wales Police said: ”We are aware of the impact such a case has on the community, and would like to reassure the public that we are increasing patrols over the coming days.”
Detectives have thanked the public for their support and are still appealing for anyone with information to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference no. V061153.
