An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a Winton man was stabbed to death on Monday evening.
He was pulled in for questioning on Thursday 1 September and remains in police custody.
He is the third teenager to be questioned by police after Wesley Lennon (formerly Wesley Barnard) was fatally wounded while trying to break up a street fight outside his cousin’s home on Cambrai Crescent in Winton.
A 16-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week have been bailed until 21 September.
Police are repeating their appeal for anyone with any information to come forward.
Inspector Lewis Hughes from GMP’s Major incident Team said: “This is a terrible incident where a young man has lost his life.
“My thoughts are with his family at this extremely difficult time.
“Although we have made a number of arrests, the investigation is still in the early stages and we are still appealing for anyone with any information to contact police.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 7336, via 101 or you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Devastated family this week launched a GoFundMe fundraising appeal to help pay for the father-of-two’s funeral costs.
More flowers and tributes have been laid at the site of Mr Lennon’s killing on Cambrai Crescent in Winton, Eccles.
