Four questioned over stab murder

Four men are being questioned after a man was found dying with stab wounds.

Thames Valley Police launched a murder investigation after a 38-year-old man was found seriously injured at a property in Queens Road, Newbury, Berkshire, at about 10pm on Friday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination is expected to take place tomorrow and formal identification is unlikely to take place until then, a spokesman said.

Police were initially called to a 33-year-old man who was found seriously injured in Boundary Road, Newbury, at 9.25pm.

A force spokesman said he remained in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Three men, aged 20, 22 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of murder, police said.

A fourth man, aged 32, was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, he added.

Detective Chief Inspector Joe Kidman said: "Both victims appear to have stab-type injuries. It does appear that the parties involved are known to each other."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Thames Valley Police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
