Today (Sunday 13 August), we have arrested two men in connection with the death of a man from Woodseats, Sheffield.

The pair, aged 41 and 50, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to police custody. Two women, aged 44 and 35, who were arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week also remain in police custody.

An investigation was launched after we were called by ambulance service shortly before 11.30pm on Wednesday (9 August) to reports that a 60-year-old man had been found inside a property on Fraser Drive with a head injury.

He was taken to hospital, where he sadly died in the early hours of Friday morning (11 August).

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Thomas Woodward, said: “I would like to thank local residents for their cooperation and patience throughout this week. There has been a large police presence in the area and I appreciate this may have caused some disruption and concern.

“We remain keen to hear from anyone who lives on Fraser Drive and may have seen or heard anything unusual on Wednesday evening or in the early hours of Thursday morning. Any piece of information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be crucial to our investigation.”

“If you were in the area at the time, or if you think you may have CCTV or dashcam footage which could assist our enquiries, please get in touch.”

You can call 101 or submit information online via our website. Please quote incident number 1225 of 9 August.
