A further four arrests have been made as part of our ongoing murder investigation following the death of a man stabbed in Bristol’s Castle Park earlier this week.
Emergency services were called to Fairfax Street after a 36-year-old man was found injured at around 4.30pm on Tuesday 31 January.
A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday afternoon.
A further four arrests have since been made. A 26-year-old man and a 22-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder, while a 36-year-old man and 23-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
All five remain in police custody.
We continue to appeal for witnesses who may have seen an altercation involving two groups of men, all of whom were black, in the park opposite the junction of Union Street and Wine Street on Tuesday. Two people were in possession of bikes.
