Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of 22-year-old Davices Anderson have made six further arrests.
A 53-year-old man and 44-year-old woman were arrested yesterday (Sunday 30 April 2023) on suspicion of murder and four other suspects – two men aged 49 and 39 and two women aged 44 and 33 – were detained on suspicion of assisting an offender.
In addition, magistrates have granted police more time to question two others who were previously arrested in connection with the investigation – a 60-year-old man who was arrested on Friday (28 April 2023) on suspicion of murder, and a 50-year-old man arrested on Saturday (29 April 2023) on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Officers were called to High Cross Leys, at the junction of Huntingdon Street and Woodborough Road, in Nottingham city centre, at around 7.50am on Friday (28 April 2023).
Mr Anderson was treated by paramedics at the scene and taken to hospital where, despite the efforts of medical staff, he died at 9.36am.
