Police investigation into man’s death in Southampton

Police are now in a position to provide an update into the death of a man in Cranbury Terrace, Southampton, yesterday morning (29 June)


Police attended at 3.58am following a report of a disturbance outside a property there.


A 30-year-old man was found nearby with serious injuries and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.


As part of our initial enquiries, officers arrested a 38-year-old man from Southampton on suspicion of murder.


He was also later arrested for assault by beating of an emergency worker in relation to an incident with a detention officer while in custody yesterday morning.


The man has been questioned and police have carried out a number of enquiries at the scene.


Officers now believe the 30-year old man died due to an injury sustained at the scene which did not involve any third party, and a file is being prepared for the coroner.


Therefore the 38-year-old man has been released from custody and no further action will be taken against him. He has received a conditional caution for the assault on an emergency worker.
