Police launched an investigation following the attack and have today (26 December) arrested four suspects.

A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder this morning, and police then arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of murder later in the day.

Police also arrested two further suspects, aged 32 and 26, for murder, with both men having previously been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

All four suspects remain in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Croome, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: “I’d once again like to pass on my condolences to Mr Connor’s loved ones during what must be an incredibly difficult time for them.

“A large team of officers have been investigating the attack that took Mr Connor’s life since it happened and we have now arrested four suspects.

“This is still very much an ongoing investigation however, so we’d again ask anyone who was in the area at the time of this incident and spotted anything suspicious to contact us immediately.

“We’d also like to hear from residents or motorists with any CCTV, doorbell camera, or dashcam footage that could assist our inquiries.

“Any piece of information, however small it might seem, could make a huge difference in helping us fully understand what happened.”

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 375 of 25 December 2023.
