Two men charged with murder after Rutland Street stabbing victim dies in hospital

Two men have been charged with murder following the stabbing which took place on Rutland Street on Saturday evening.

At 6.40pm, a 36-year-old man was wound with serious wounds to his head after reportedly being stabbed with a garden fork.

Emergency services were called to the scene on Rutland Street, and he was taken to hospital in an ambulance where he remained in critical condition.

Sadly, he passed away yesterday on Monday 26 April as a result of his injuries.

Luke Teague, 38, of Runswick Road, Grimsby, and Stephen Beach, 39, of Ashbourne Court, Scunthorpe, have both been charged with his murder. They are due to appear at Grimsby Magistrates Court today.

It is said by police that the three men were “known to each other”.

The victim’s family are being supported by specially trained officers and have asked for their privacy at this time.

Detective Chief Inspector Christine Calvert from Humberside Police said: “Although this was an isolated incident between individuals known to each other, we appreciate such a tragic incident of this nature has caused shock to the local community.

“Our neighbourhood team continue to be on hand to speak to residents about any concerns they may have. We encourage you to speak with these officers.

“Our thoughts are with the man’s family and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.

“We would ask that anyone with any information who has not yet spoken with us to call our non-emergency number 101 quoting log 544 of 24 April 2021.  Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”

Following the two fatal stabbings which took place on Saturday evening in Grimsby, Humberside Police have announced their support of Operation Sceptre, the national scheme which aims to tackle knife crime.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family, friends and all those who knew him.
