Man, 27, quizzed over killing

Have your say

A 27-year-old arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was found dead in a flat is still being questioned.

Police found the 52-year-old man, who is believed to have been stabbed, when they were called to reports of an assault in Anderson Court, Belmont Close, Hassocks, West Sussex, at 3.05pm yesterday, a Sussex Police spokesman said.

The victim, who is not from Sussex, is thought to have died yesterday afternoon shortly before the police were called.

The man, from Hassocks, was arrested at the scene and police took away a knife.

The flat and area immediately around it remained cordoned off this morning while police continue forensic examinations.
