We are still in the very early stages of this investigation and our enquiries to understand exactly what happened are ongoing.
I want to reassure people that this is being treated as an isolated incident and we now have a named suspect in custody.
But we are still keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone who may be able to help us piece together the events of yesterday evening.
– Superintendent Nick Walton, Coventry Police
