Grandad Murder: New Arrest
Police investigating the murder of a grandad killed at home in Bedfordshire have arrested an 18 year old man.
Sharif Demirsay, 65, (right) was killed at his home in Kempston at 9.30pm on Tuesday 14 May 2013 by three men wielding knives who stole cash and jewellery from his 68 year old partner who also suffered knife injuries to her arm as she bravely tried to defend him.
Police went to an address in Kempston and arrested the 18 year old on suspicion of murder.
DI Richard Wall, investigating said: “This is the fourth arrest in connection with this inquiry and officers will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of person who took Sharif’s life.
"We still believe there are people locally in Kempston who have information about those responsible for carrying out this terrible crime on a defenceless elderly man.
"For the sake of his family and the wider community, I urge you to be brave and come forward if you can help. The people responsible for this murder must be brought to justice.”
Anyone with information that can help is asked to contact the Beds, Cambs and Herts Major Crime Unit direct on 01480 422791.
