Arrests made after teen death in daylight Salford attack


A fourth arrest has been made after a 19-year-old was found with stab wounds to the chest and subsequently died in Salford earlier this month.

Police attended reports of two men fighting on Hope Street, Lower Broughton, at around 7.45pm on Friday 10 June.

Jakub Gorski was found with stab wounds to the chest before being taken to Salford Royal Hospital where he died.

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.”

He added that the attack occurred during daylight, and appealed for anyone who was in the area of Hope Street and Great Clowes Street who many have seen something to come forward.

“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,” DCI Crompton continued.

“We are doing everything we can to ensure we bring those responsible for his untimely death to justice, and the public can assist us in this task”.

A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody, while two 26-year-old men and a 49-year-old man have been bailed until 20 June.
