AN IRISHMAN has been released on bail after being arrested for the murder of a man in Cambridge.
The 36-year-old from Galway was arrested at Holyhead Port in Anglesey, Wales last weekend and has been bailed to return to Parkside Police Station on August 18.
The victim, 39-year-old Cambridge local Jeff Henry, died in hospital last Friday, after spending five days in intensive care following the incident.
In the early hours of Sunday, June 7, Mr Henry was attacked in two assaults – one at 12.45am and one which took place about 25 minutes before.
The attacks left him with a fractured skull and traumatic brain injuries.
He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he spent five days in a critical condition, before the decision was made to switch off his life support machine last Friday.
It is understood that Mr Henry was running away from two men along Campkin Road, towards Arbury Road, just moments before the attack.
Detective Inspector Alan Page said: “At 39-years-old Jeff was a relatively young man with plenty of his life left to live and enjoy. This was a brutal attack and I believe members of the local community may be able to assist us with our investigation into what happened that night.
“I would urge anyone with information to come forward, no matter how minor or irrelevant you think the information may be.”
