THE MAN who died following a stabbing in Nuneaton has been named as Tom Ellis, 25, of St Nicholas Park.

He was taken to hospital after the attack – outside the Ropewalk shopping centre on Queens Road in Nuneaton Town Centre shortly before 9:30pm on Saturday – but died from his injuries.

His next of kin has been informed, and a post-mortem will be carried out as part of the investigation in the next few days.

A murder investigation has been launched, and a team of detectives are making proactive CCTV and witness enquiries.

Two arrests have been made following this incident – a 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy from Nuneaton – both on suspicion of murder.

Ch Insp Kris Shore said “This is a tragic incident of senseless violence right in the centre of our community, and we will not stop until we identify, arrest, and charge those responsible for it.

“Our officers are in the town centre if anyone wants to come and talk to them about what’s happened – particularly if they have information that could help us with our investigation.

“Our thoughts are with Tom’s family, and we will be providing them with dedicated support throughout the investigation and following criminal process.”

Witnesses or anyone with information, CCTV or dash-cam footage should report it on the Warwickshire Police portal here or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
