Appeal after Man Dies Following Incident in Eston

Police were called to an address on Eston High Street at around 8.30pm yesterday evening (Wednesday 26th December) by ambulance service colleagues. 

A man, believed to be aged in his thirties, had suffered serious injuries and sadly he was pronounced dead shortly after officers arrived at the scene.

Four men, aged 29, 30, 32 and 38, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody. 

The man has not yet been formally identified and while we understand residents may feel concerned by this incident, we do not believe there is any risk to the wider public at this time.  Officers will remain in the area providing a reassuring presence and continuing inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.

We would ask anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area yesterday afternoon or evening to contact Cleveland Police in complete confidence via the 101 number.  Please quote event 234687.
