A woman who was stabbed to death at a flat before a blood-soaked man ‘jumped from a second floor window’ has been named.
Police say Danielle Richardson, 24, died from multiple stab wounds following an attack at a home in Ancoats, Manchester, yesterday morning.
A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains under arrest while receiving treatment in hospital, the Manchester Evening News reports.
Before Ms Richardson was found dead, witnesses reported seeing a ‘blood-soaked’ man leap from the Shush Apartments, on Swan Street, at around 7.40am.
He jumped from a second-storey window and landed on a stationary Hyundai i30, which was being parked up on the road by a family.
The man then attacked those inside the car, punching a woman in the face before running off towards Thompson Street.
While there, the man smashed the window of a black BMW before assaulting the woman inside.
Greater Manchester Police say three other people were also attacked.
Police arrived and pinned a man to the ground before arresting him.
When officers went to the Shush Apartment flat, Ms Richardson was found dead.
A Home Office post-mortem examination has confirmed she died from multiple stab wounds.
Senior Investigating Officer Andy Butterworth, of GMP’s Major Incident team, said: “This was a horrific attack on an innocent woman and we have a team of specialist officers supporting her family at what is understandably a very difficult time.
“Our investigation is currently ongoing and a scene remains in place on Swan Street so you will see officers in the area.
“I would continue to urge anyone with any information to please get in touch so that we can continue to build a picture of what happened yesterday morning.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, quoting reference number 327 of February 13.
