Two men are facing murder charges after a victim was stabbed in the head with a garden fork.
The unnamed man, 36, was found in Rutland Street, Grimsby, Lincolnshire, on Saturday evening around 6.40pm with serious head wounds before he died in hospital on Monday.
Luke Teague, 38, Runswick Road, Grimsby, and Stephen Beach, 39, of Ashbourne Court, Scunthorpe, have been charged with murder and are due in magistrates court on Tuesday.
Police have confirmed those believed to have been involved were known to each other prior to the incident, reports GrimsbyLive.
A Humberside Police spokesman said: “A 36-year-old man was found with wounds to his head at 6.40pm after reportedly being stabbed with a garden fork.
“He was taken to hospital and remained in a critical condition, but has today (Monday 26 April) sadly died from his injuries.”
The man’s family are being supported by specially trained officers and have asked for their privacy at this time.
Detective Chief Inspector Christine Calvert said: “Although this was an isolated incident between individuals known to each other, we appreciate such a tragic incident of this nature has caused shock to the local community.
“Our neighbourhood team continue to be on hand to speak to residents about any concerns they may have. We encourage you to speak with these officers.
“Our thoughts are with the man’s family and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident 544 of April 24 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The assault happened less than two hours before a man was stabbed at the corner of Duncombe Street and Freeman Street.
Anna Królikowska, 27, of Duncombe Street appeared at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court charged with the murder of the 32-year-old Adam Królikowski.
Mr Krozolinowski was found with stab wounds outside the Freeman Arms on Freeman Street shortly after 8pm, he was taken to hospital by ambulance but tragically died a few hours later.
Ms Królikowska will make her first Grimsby Crown Court appearance on Wednesday, April 28.
That itself followed an earlier incident in the Wellington Street area, where a 17-year-old boy was found with injuries to his stomach and arms at around 3am on Saturday.
Woodyard Court was cordoned off as police investigated the incident. His injuries are understood to not be life-threatening.
Police say none of the incidents are connected and are being treated as separate and isolated.
