Detective Inspector Wayne Bevan said: “This is an ongoing enquiry, and members of the public will continue to see police in the Wind Street area.

“We would like to reassure the community that we are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident, but we would still like to speak with anyone who has information that might help our investigation.
