Cheadle stabbing suspect held over man's death

A woman is being questioned on suspicion of murder after a man was stabbed to death in Stockport.

Police were called to a house on John Avenue in Cheadle at about 23:30 GMT to reports a man had been stabbed.

The 32-year-old man was found with knife wounds and taken to hospital where he later died from his injuries.

A 41-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder and is being questioned by detectives. Police are appealing for information.

A post-mortem examination is expected to take place later.

Ch Supt Chris Sykes, divisional commander of Stockport, said: "Sadly a young man has died and I want to reassure his loved ones as well as his neighbours, friends and the local community that we will do everything we can to establish how and why he came to be injured.

"A woman has been arrested and will be interviewed throughout the day by my staff.

"We do not believe there to be a threat to anyone else but will have officers in and around the area if anyone wants to come and talk to us."
