POLICE will continue to question a man on suspicion of murder after a stabbing at the weekend.

Abdul Deghayes was killed at Elm Grove in Brighton at 9.30pm on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old suffered “multiple stab wounds” and was found in the passenger seat of a car.

Elm Grove and surrounding streets were sealed off by police on Sunday while police carried out forensic searches.

It is believed that Mr Deghayes may have been attacked in nearby Wellington Road, before being found in a car that had crashed into other vehicles around the corner at St Joseph’s Church.

His father Abubaker said the family are in mourning and feel a great sense of shock over murder.

Meanwhile a 26-year-old man from Brighton handed himself in at John Street Police Station at around 4pm on Sunday afternoon.

He was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody today.

Police are still trying to trace other people who may have been involved.

Chief Inspector Andy Bennett said: "We are trying to establish the exact circumstances of what has led to this young man's tragic death and we are keeping an open mind at this time.

"We are aware that the car was in collision with other vehicles shortly before he was found to have suffered these injuries, which we are satisfied were caused maliciously and not as a result of the collision.

"We would like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have witnessed the collision or who may have seen something that they may now regard as suspicious in the time leading up to it.

"We have made one arrest, but we are seeking to trace others who we think may have been involved."

The suspect can be held for 24 hours, and 36 hours for more serious offences. It is expected that police will apply to hold him for an extra 12 hours before deciding if he will be charged.

Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the events on Saturday night is asked to report it online to Sussex Police or on 101 and quote Operation Login.
