Manhunt launched after woman fatally stabbed in Greater Manchester

A hunt has been launched for a man after a 44-year-old woman was fatally stabbed in Droylsden, Greater Manchester police said.

Officers were called to Edge Lane at about noon on Friday to reports of a stabbing, and confirmed the woman died at the scene.

The force said initial reports suggested the male suspect fled the area in an unknown direction, and detectives were unable to confirm whether the victim was known to the attacker.

GMP said officers are working with the victim’s family and members of the public to try to establish what happened. The victim’s family are being supported by family liaison officers.

Ch Supt Phil Davies, Tameside’s district commander, said: “Firstly, our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim. Our specialist family liaison officers are currently with the victim’s family to support them through what is an incredibly difficult time.

“GMP officers and our major incident team are working extremely hard to determine the full circumstances surrounding this incident. We will do everything we can to ensure we locate the person responsible for this callous attack.

“I understand this news will come as a great shock to those in the Droylsden community. In response, you will see an increased presence of our local officers, who will be patrolling the local community on foot and in vehicles providing added reassurance.”

Anyone with information, CCTV or video footage to do with the incident can contact GMP by calling 101 or visiting www.gmp.police.uk quoting log 1353 of 02/06/2023.
