Detectives from PSNI Major Investigation Team have launched a murder investigation following the death of a man in Ballymena this afternoon, Saturday 21 March.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Montgomery said: “Shortly after 3.30prn this afternoon Police received a report that a man had been stabbed in a property on Galgorm Road. Police responded but despite the efforts of emergency services the 67 year man was pronounced dead at the scene. A 36 year old man was also taken to hospital for treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.

“A 51 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder and remains in custody at this time.

“I am appealing for anyone who was on Galgorm Road this afternoon and who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information that can assist with the investigation to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 863 21/03/20.

Alternatively information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 080055111 that gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
