Murder investigation launched after woman dies in supermarket stabbing
A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 30-year-old woman died following a stabbing incident inside a North Yorkshire supermarket.
Police and paramedics were called to the Aldi store on Keighley Road in Skipton at 3.27pm on Thursday 21 December 2017.
The suspect was initially detained by brave members of staff and public, before he was arrested by officers who were quickly on scene.
He was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder, but it has now turned into a murder investigation despite the efforts of medics to save the victim.
The woman’s family are being supported by police officers while enquiries continue.
We are not in a position to identify the victim at this stage, and we urge people respect her family’s privacy and to avoid speculation and rumour on social media.
A police scene guard will remain in place overnight at Aldi.Published: by Radio NewsHub
