We have arrested a second person on suspicion of murder following an incident in Broad Street, Swindon, yesterday evening (11/07).
A woman in her 30s was arrested at around noon today and is now in police custody.
The arrests are in connection with a stabbing which occurred in Broad Street at around 9pm yesterday.
The victim, a man in his 40s, suffered a serious knife injury and was taken to hospital for emergency treatment.
Sadly, he died later in the night. His next of kin have been informed and our thoughts are with them.
We have put scenes in place in Broad Street, Swindon, and Galsworthy Close in Liden while officers carry out enquiries. These are likely to remain in place for several hours.
