A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a fatal stabbing in Luton last week.
A 19-year-old man from Luton was arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday (Sunday) in connection to the death of Dean Fountaine, 37.
He remains in police custody for questioning.
A murder investigation was launched after police were called to Ashton Road, Luton on Monday 19 June following reports of a stabbing.
Mr Fountaine, from Leighton Buzzard, was taken to hospital with serious injuries and was sadly pronounced dead the next morning (Tuesday).
Two other people have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in connection to the investigation and released on bail, as detectives carry out further enquiries.
Detective Chief Inspector Sam Khanna, from the Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “This is a significant point in our investigation, and I want to thank everyone for their hard work in getting to this point.
“This was unacceptable violence, and we are determined to bring those involved to justice, as well as supporting Dean’s family at such a difficult time.
“We are continuing to ask people for any information they might have which can assist our enquiries, so please get in touch with us or Crimestoppers if you can help.”
