Hampshire & IOW Constabulary – Operation Boothwood

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary have launched an investigation following a fatal stabbing in Basingstoke.


Details of Incident

We are appealing for witnesses and information following a fatal stabbing in Basingstoke.

Police were called by the ambulance service just before 9pm on Sunday 12 May to a report of a stabbing at an address in Tasmania Close.

Officers attended the address and confirmed two men had been stabbed.

A man in his 30s from Basingstoke was confirmed deceased at the scene, the other victim, a man in his 30s from Newbury, West Berkshire, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries and is currently being treated in hospital.

No arrests have been made at this stage.

Based on our initial enquiries we believe that the people involved in this incident are known to each other and we do not believe there is any wider risk to the general public.

Officers will be in the area today conducting enquiries so please speak to them if you have any concerns.

We have already spoken to several witnesses but if you have any information or CCTV footage relevant to this investigation, and have not already spoken to police, please call 101 quoting reference 44240199153.
