A sixth suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Kempston grandad.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of the May murder of Sharif Demirsay.
The youth was taken from his home in Iddlesleigh Road, Queens Park on Tuesday and was interviewed by detectives investigating the shocking murder.
Det Chf Insp Tim Redfearn, who is heading up the murder probe, said: “We are very keen to hear from anyone with information about this crime.
“This is a long-running and wide-ranging enquiry that has resulted in us identifying a number of people locally who clearly have key information.
“Some of those people have understood that it is important for Sharif’s family for them to do the right thing, and have spoke to us.”
The 65-year-old grandad was stabbed to death at his home in Vineyard Way on May 14 by three men who knocked on the door.
His partner, who bravely tried to protect Sharif from the attackers was also injured.
So far six people have been arrested in the hunt for Sharif’s killers. Four were released on bail until October 9, while another suspect, who was arrested at the time of the murder, was released without further action.
