Salford park stabbing: three teenagers arrested over death of Alan Szelugowski

Greater Manchester Police said inquiries are ongoing into the fatal stabbing in Clowes Park.

Three teenagers have been arrested on Tuesday in connection with the fatal stabbing of Alan Szelugowski.

Alan, 17, was found dead by a dog walker in Clowes Park in the Broughton area on Sunday 30 January.

A 17-year-old boy who was arrested on suspicion of murder was later bailed, pending further enquiries - and police confirmed on Tuesday morning that three boys, one aged 15 and two aged 16, had been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Jones, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “As our investigation continues, our thoughts remain with Alan’s loved ones.

“We have three suspects in custody but our enquiries are very much on going and we continue to appeal to anyone with information to contact us.”

Knife crimes

Alan’s death follows the fatal stabbing of another teenager Kennie Carter, 16, who was found with knife wounds in Stretford on 22 January.

And since the tragedy, another young man, Dylan Keelan, 20, was also fatally stabbed in Cheetham Hill Road in Dukinfield last Friday.

Police have not linked the cases but have said they are stepping up patrols and increasing stop and search activities in response.
