Forensics officers were seen combing the street for clues in the wake of the attack.

Piotr Olejarczyk, 28, of Knoll Street, Salford, has now been charged with murder.

Three men, aged 26, 26 and 49, were arrested on suspicion of murder but have now been bailed until Monday 20 June.

Speaking on Sunday, Detective Chief Inspector Terry Crompton said: “Jakub’s death has left a gaping hole in his family, who are understandably devastated by the loss of their young son and brother.”

“To lose a child in such violent circumstances must be incredibly difficult to come to terms with, and my officers and I offer our most sincere condolences to the Gorski family at this time.”

Olejarczyk has been remanded in custody and will appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court today, Monday 13 June 2016.
