Police at the scene in Holden road
23-year-old Jordan Davies named as man killed in suspected Barry murder. Jordan Davies was pronounced dead at the scene
The suspected murder victim killed in Barry has been named by police. South Wales Police confirmed that 23-year-old Jordan Davies died after the incident on Monday. Mr Davies died on Holton Road after suffering stab wounds during an assault at around 4pm. A 24-year-old local man, who was known to the victim, was arrested within hours of the incident on suspicion of murder.
Armed police were called to the scene and Holton Road was closed for several hours. DCI O’Shea also thanked those who supported officers who were at the scene during and after the incident. He added: “This was an extremely distressing incident for all who were present, including local retailers and shoppers and our officers who remained at the scene. I’m extremely grateful for the patience and kindness shown by generous local residents.”
He remains in custody and officers are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the death. Senior investigating officer DCI Mark O’Shea said: “This was a tragic incident which has cost a young man his life, and has devastated families. “The attack happened in a busy town centre, and I would like to thank those members of the community who came to Jordan’s aid and did what they could to help him.
“While many tried to assist, we know that the incident was captured on camera, and I would appeal to anyone with any mobile phone or dash-cam footage not to share it publicly and instead pass it on to the police so that we can fully investigate and ensure justice for the young victim. The public have been really forthcoming with information, which proved key in ensuring a suspect was apprehended quickly. We’re still, however, appealing for anyone who has any information – no matter how insignificant it may seem – to come forward.”
