Turkish-born Serafettin Demirsay – known as Sharif – was stabbed when three men forced their way into his home when he answered a knock at the door at about 9.30pm on Tuesday. A post mortem carried out yesterday showed he died of a stab wound to the chest.

A man who was arrested on Wednesday morning from a house in Cotton End just outside Bedford has now been released on conditional police bail, pending further enquiries.
Det Chief Insp Tim Redfearn, of the Beds, Cambs and Herts MCU, stressed that the enquiry is far from finished and appealed to anyone who may have been in the area at the time to make contact with the enquiry team.
“This was a terribly distressing attack on a defenceless man in his own home, in front of his distraught partner,” he said. “We are trying to piece together exactly what happened prior to the stabbing and it is still not at all clear what the motive for this attack was.”
“What we do know is that three men were seen on CCTV approaching the house at about 9.30pm, dressed in dark clothes and with hoods covering their faces. Someone knocked on the door, prompting Sharif to open it.
"Once the men were inside, they launched a violent attack on him and his partner, before running off and turning right, away from the house.“While we have arrested a man, this enquiry is not solved and we do want to hear from anyone else who can help with information about this incident.”
