Police investigating the murder of Abdul Deghayes have arrested a third man.

The 36-year-old man, from London, was arrested on suspicion of murder at an address in Crawley in the early hours of this morning.

It follows the stabbing of Mr Deghayes, 22, who was found with multiple wounds in the passenger seat of a car in Elm Grove in Brighton on Saturday night.

A 36-year-old woman from Crawley was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both remained in custody on Wednesday at 1.30pm, along with a 54-year-old man from Brighton who was arrested on Monday afternoon.

Residents reported a massive police presence in Elm Grove after the incident at 9.30pm on Saturday night.

Police believe Mr Deghayes was attacked in nearby Wellington Road, around the corner from where he was later found injured in the car.

He was rushed to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, but died from his injuries on Sunday morning.

Police launched a murder inquiry, and forensics officers scoured the area looking for clues. Residents said their bins were emptied into the street, while the fire brigade were called in to check drains.

Elm Grove and surrounding streets were completely sealed off on Sunday, with residents being escorted to and from their front doors. Meanwhile two services at St Joseph's Church were cancelled.

A 26-year-old man who handed himself to police on Sunday afternoon was released without charge.

Chief Inspector Andy Bennett said: "The investigation is still very active and developing and we are still appealing for anyone with information about the incident or the circumstances leading up to it to ​report online or call 101 quoting Operation Login."
