Dad stabbed to death in front of son after argument over noisy bikes | UK | New UK News

Police confirmed that two men had been arrested and that a murder investigation had been opened. The emergency services, including the armed police, were called on Wednesday shortly after 7:35 pm “following reports of a disturbance involving a number of people”. Paramedics fought to save Mr Allsop but he was pronounced dead at the scene next to communal garages near his semi-detached house in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich. He lived there with his partner and his sons.

At least eight police cars, ambulances and rapid response vehicles have been seen in the area.

An East Anglian Air Ambulance helicopter was called in and landed at nearby playgrounds.

Retired medical assistant Eve Cooper, 67, said: “I realized something was going on when I heard the ambulance and saw the police cars.

“Then the helicopter came down so low that I could see the pilot. It was pretty awful.” A police spokesperson said: “Officers arrived at the scene to find four injured people.

“Despite treatment by paramedics, a man was pronounced dead at the scene. Three other people were taken to hospital for treatment for suspected stab wounds.

“Police arrested two men at the scene in connection with the incident who will be questioned in due course.

Officers have cordoned off the scene in Primrose Crescent while investigations are ongoing. “

Commissioner Tracey Little added: “A number of law enforcement resources, including armed units, have been deployed to the scene.

“A murder investigation has been opened and we are in the early stages of our investigation to establish the circumstances of the incident.

“We would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have information about it.”

Forensic teams were on the scene and the area was cordoned off.

A tent purported to cover potential evidence was visible outside the communal garages.

Anyone with information should call the police on 101.
