Police have arrested a man in connection with the murder of a man in Heaton.
At around 10.12am Thursday 13 July police received a report of concern for man at an address on Heaton Hall Road in Heaton.
Emergency services attended where they found 59-year-old Steven George Coulter who had suffered a single stab wound to the chest.
Enquiries to determine what led to Steven's death are ongoing but police have now arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of murder.
He remains in police custody but a team of detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone who may have seen or spoken to Steven.
It is believed he could have died a number of days before he was found and so detectives particularly want to speak to anyone who may have seen Steven on Saturday, July 8, or Sunday, July 9.
Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Dave English said:
If you do have information that may be helpful to the police investigation then contact officers.
