Police investigating a man’s murder have arrested two more suspects.
Father-of-two Ricardo, aged 33, died after being stabbed in Broad Street, in Nottingham city centre, shortly before 2am on Sunday (24 April).
He collapsed a short time later in Lower Parliament Street and, despite the best efforts of paramedics, sadly passed away at the scene.
A 26-year-old man was arrested shortly after midnight today (Wednesday) and is being held on suspicion of murder.
Another man, aged 36, was arrested yesterday afternoon in Nottingham on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Both men remain in police custody.
Detectives have also been granted more time to question a 30-year-old man who was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Officers continue to pursue several lines of enquiry including gathering CCTV, witness accounts and forensic evidence.
Patrols have also been stepped up in the area to provide public reassurance.
Detective Chief Inspector Clare Dean, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Our team of specialist detectives continue to work around the clock to get to track down everyone involved in this appalling act of violence and to get justice for Ricardo’s family.
“We now have three people in custody and we are actively looking for a number of other suspects in connection with the investigation.
“This is a very fast moving investigation and we have already processed a very large amount of evidence, but we are still keen to speak with anybody who may have witnessed an altercation between a group of men in the early hours of Sunday morning, a group of men running from the scene.
“We are especially keen to speak with anybody who may have relevant mobile phone or dash-cam footage of what happened.”
“Any piece of information, no matter how small, may prove the vital clue that we need to bring everyone involved n Ricardo’s murder to justice.”
