48-year-old Mark Mason, who was from Rhyl, died following an incident at a car park in Marsh Road on Thursday evening.

The arrest has been made outside the north Wales area and interviews are continuing three others arrested yesterday in connection with the death.

We know that the vehicle in which Mr Mark Mason was attacked in was a Renault Kangoo, registration X213 HHN. The Kangoo was followed along Ffordd Las, Rhyl by a Black BMW X1 car, before being followed into the Home Bargains car park.

The occupants of this vehicle are responsible for the targeted and planned attack on Mark Mason. We know that there were a few people in the area of Marsh Road and Ffordd Las at the time of the attack and I would like anyone in the area to make contact so we can rule them out of the investigation.

We are keen to gather information around the Black BMW X1, which we know contained a number of males. The behaviour of the vehicle and its occupants would have attracted attention before and after the fatal attack on Mark Mason.
