Detectives investigating the death of a man in Scarborough have named him as 26 year-old local man Solomon Robinson.

He was found with serious injuries outside the Town Hall on St Nicholas Street at 2am on Sunday 20 October 2019 and taken to hospital where he sadly died.

Two have been released on conditional bail and North Yorkshire Police has been granted a magistrates’ extension to detain and further question the remaining eight.

Detective Superintendent Fran Naughton, of North Yorkshire Police, said:

“We know that it was busy in the town centre at the time of the stabbing and continue to appeal to anyone who was nearby or has any information to come forward.

Did you see a group of males congregated outside the Town Hall? 

Were you passing through or did you notice anyone acting in a manner that was untoward? 

Have you seen anything on social media which you think could be linked?

Any information you have could be crucial to our investigation.”
