Police were called to Angle Ways in Stevenage shortly after 4am yesterday morning after reports that a man had been found lying in the street. The man had sustained a stab wound but, despite attempts to revive him, was later pronounced dead at the town’s Lister Hospital.

The fifth person to be arrested since the stabbing is a 49-year-old man from North Herts who was arrested last night on suspicion of conspiracy to rob. He remains in police custody at this time.

Four others who were yesterday arrested on suspicion of murder, also remain in police custody.

Det Insp Justine Jenkins from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit is investigating the murder.
