Three people are being questioned on suspicion of murder in Holyhead.

Two men and a woman were arrested after a 58 year-old man was ”badly assaulted” in the Thomas Street and Mount Pleasant area of the town on Tuesday morning (17th November)

The local man, said to be well known in the area, died at the Royal Stoke University Hospital on Thursday night, surrounded by his family.

Two of the suspects – a 38 year-old local man and a 44 year-old woman were detained in the Holyhead area on Friday morning.

The third – a 47 year-old local man – was arrested on Tuesday night in connection with the incident. He is now being on suspicion of murder.

An incident room has been set up at Llangefni police station as part of the murder inquiry.

DCI Brian Kearney, whose leading the North Wales Police investigation, said: ”Clearly our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the victim and we continue to request that their privacy is respected at this very tragic time.”

”We fully appreciate the shock this has caused with our community and we are continuing to appeal to anyone who has any information to come forward.”

The victim was attacked between 10am and 11am on Tuesday. It’s believed he managed to walk towards his partner’s address near Holborn Road before he was taken to hospital.

Earlier, police appealed for anyone who witnessed the assault or saw a man ”unsteady on his feet” between Holborn Road, Victoria Road and Thomas Street.

The man was taken first to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, but transferred later that evening to a specialist trauma unit in Stoke.
