POLICE have revealed people at the centre of a murder probe in Bournemouth are part of a “wider family”.

As reported, Dorset Police was called at 2.20am on Friday by the ambulance service to reports of a 46-year-old man with stab wounds in Eldon Place, Westbourne.

The man died at the scene.

A woman in her 40s and a teenage boy, both from Bournemouth, were taken to hospital with injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

A 31-year-old man, who was also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Bournemouth neighbourhood inspector, Jon Wasey, said: “I would like to reassure the community that our major crime investigation team is continuing with a thorough investigation to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

“Early enquiries indicate that all those involved are part of a wider family group.

“Local people will see an increased police presence as officers are carrying out house-to-house visits and CCTV enquiries and the scene is being investigated.

“This should not impact on any of the businesses in the area.

“If anyone locally has concerns, please raise these with our neighbourhood policing team.”

People with information are still urged to contact police on 101, quoting occurrence number 19:35, or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
