6 Stabbed To Death On Island Of Jersey

ST. HELIER, Jersey, Aug. 14 (UPI) — Police said they were holding a 30-year-old man Sunday in the stabbing deaths of three adults and three children on the island of Jersey.

The BBC reported police were called to a St. Helier apartment about 3 p.m.after reports that several people had been stabbed.

The name of the victims — a man, two women and three children — and their relationships had not been released. Police also had not named the man they had in custody, who was hospitalized after surgery, the British network said.

“Clearly this complex investigation is in its very early stages as we try to establish exactly what happened,” Steward Gull, head of police crime services on Jersey, a British dependency, said.

“We are mindful, too, of the impact of any such serious and tragic incident on the local community, and we have police officers in the area to support the investigation and local people.”

Gull said the attack scene was “pretty traumatic” for emergency services staff who responded.

“Dealing with multiple deaths of men, women and particularly young children, it has shaken the force but the officers who initially responded were tremendously professional,” he said.
