Anglesey murder: Three arrested after attacked man dies

Three people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 58-year-old man.

A 38-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman were arrested on Friday morning, and a 47-year-old man on Tuesday night.

The victim died in hospital after being “badly assaulted”. Police said he managed to walk to his partner’s address after he was attacked in Holyhead, Anglesey, on Tuesday.

He was taken by ambulance to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

He was then transferred to the Royal Stoke University Hospital, where he died on Thursday.

Officers said the man and woman arrested on Friday were held in the Holyhead area.

Det Ch Insp Brian Kearney, of North Wales Police, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the victim and we continue to request that their privacy is respected at this very tragic time.

“We fully appreciate the shock this has caused with our community and we are continuing to appeal to anyone who has any information to come forward.”

Det Ch Insp Kearney said the man was attacked between 10:00 and 11:00 GMT on Tuesday in the Thomas Street and Mount Pleasant area of Holyhead.

“We have established that the victim managed to walk the short distance down Thomas Street past the Cenotaph to his partner’s address near Holborn Road,” he said.

The force appealed for anyone who witnessed an assault or saw a man “unsteady on his feet” between Holborn Road, Victoria Road and Thomas Street, to come forward.
