Police investigation into death of Coventry man 

We have launched an investigation after a man was seriously assaulted yesterday afternoon (26 November).

We were called to Milverton Road at around 5pm following reports of a disorder. 

A 74-year-old man was taken to hospital where he sadly died last night.

A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder. 

Enquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances that led to the man’s death.

Detective Inspector Wes Martin from the Force CID team, said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family who are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time. 

“I would urge anyone who was in the Milverton Road area at around 4.45pm yesterday afternoon who might have seen something to get in touch."
