An elderly man has sadly died after he was assaulted in a snooker club in the city on Monday evening.
Patrick Redmond, 68 and from Coundon, was punched in Riley’s Snooker Hall in Hertford Place (just outside the ringroad) at around 11pm.
His life support was switched off yesterday (Tuesday 28th).
A 37-year-old man from Radford was arrested on suspicion of wounding. Police said the man has now been re-arrested on suspicion of murder. He remains in custody.
Chief Inspector Ed Foster said: “This is a tragic case and our sympathies go to the family of the victim.
“We are in the early stages of our enquiry and I would urge anyone who witnessed what happened and has not yet spoken to a police officer to get in touch with us on 101.”
