Suspects in Swann murder granted bail

Two suspects detained by police in connection with the murder of 25-year-old Danshun Swann were released on bail on Thursday night, according to a police spokesman.

Mr Swann was fatally stabbed in the early hours of last Monday after a brawl among a group of men broke out outside Southampton Rangers Sports Club.

Two men, aged 24 and 25, were arrested last Tuesday and granted police bail “pending further inquiries”, the spokesman said.

He added: “Detectives are aware that there were several individuals in the area of Southampton Rangers Sports Club when the fatal stabbing took place and continue to appeal for those persons to come forward, if they have not done so already.

“Witnesses and members of the public with any relevant information are still encouraged to call the investigating officers, Acting Detective Chief Inspector Arthur Glasford at 717-0773 or Acting Detective Inspector Jason Smith on 717-0864.”

Anyone with information can also contact the Serious Crime Unit, at 247-1739, or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
