Three arrested after Salford burglar stabbed to death

A suspected burglar has been stabbed to death, while apparently trying to break into a house in Greater Manchester.

It is understood the man was attempting to get into a house in Ethel Avenue, Salford, on Wednesday night when the householder tried to defend the house.

The man, 26, is believed to have been carried away by other members of a balaclava-clad gang as they fled, before being dumped in the street.

Salford Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Kevin Mulligan, said he could not confirm how many times the victim had been stabbed and appealed for witnesses to come forward.
