Two held after Eastwood 'murder'

TWO people were arrested on suspicion of murder after a 26-year-old man died at Eastwood yesterday (Sunday).

Emergency services were called to reports of a serious injury at a Denman Street property at about 9.30pm.

The victim, who has not yet been formally identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 32-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman, both from the Rotherham area, were arrested on suspicion of murder and remained in police custody this morning.

A police spokeswoman said: “There is a police cordon on Denman Street, which is expected to remain in place for most of today. 

“This is to allow detectives to carry out enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.

“Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the Denman Street area yesterday evening.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting incident 800 of November 10, or give information anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
