A 26-year-old man has been arrested by detectives investigating the 2006 murder of Paul McCauley in Londonderry.

Paul was attending a summer BBQ at the rear of a house in Chapel Road when a number of individuals came out from the bushes and attacked him and two of his friends.

After the assault the group made off in the direction of Irish Street.

Paul died last June in a care facility, almost nine years after the attack.

The 26-year-old man was arrested in Coleraine on Tuesday December 8 and has been taken to the town's police station for questioning.

The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Michael Harvey said today’s arrest brought the number of people who have been arrested since Paul died last June to 10.

To date, one man has been charged with murder and another reported to the Public Prosecution Service.

DCI Harvey said police enquiries into Paul’s murder were very much ongoing and he appealed to those with information to come forward.

Detectives from Serious Crime Branch arrested a 26-year-old man in Derry on Monday, December 7.
