Five men, aged between 18 and 21 and a 16 year-old boy have been arrested.

Detectives are appealing for people to come forward with any information that could assist the investigation.

Detective Superintendent Fran Naughton of North Yorkshire Police said:

“In the early hours of Sunday morning a man was fatally stabbed outside the Town Hall. Six arrests have been made in connection with the man’s death and an investigation to establish the events surrounding it is ongoing.

We would urge anyone who witnessed any part of incident, or who has any information which could assist our investigation, to contact North Yorkshire Police.

We’d also appeal to any taxi drivers or motorists who were in the area at the time who may have dash-cam footage to share this vital information with us.

This was an isolated incident and people in the local community are likely to notice an increased presence of police officers in the area while our enquiries continue.”
