Police appeal for help to find potential witness to fatal stabbing

Police have launched a witness appeal to identify a man in connection with a fatal stabbing in Bristol earlier this week.

Avon and Somerset Police released an image of the man who they believe was in the St Pauls area of the city where the incident happened on Tuesday and may have information.

The man was wearing black clothes, riding a dark-coloured bike and carrying a large, blue, food delivery bag.

A 30-year-old man died after suffering a stab wound in an altercation at the junction of Ashley Road and Grosvenor Road on Tuesday evening.

A 43-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.

The death follows the fatal stabbings in February of Darrian Williams, 16, in the Easton area; and Mason Rist, 15; and 16-year-old Max Dixon in Knowle West in January.
