A MAN has died after he was repeatedly stabbed in the head with a garden fork.
The unnamed victim, 36, was found in Rutland Street, Grimsby, Lincolnshire on Saturday evening.
He was rushed to hospital at around 6.40pm but died on Monday from his wounds.
Luke Teague, 38, from Runswick Road, Grimsby, and Stephen Beach, 39, of Ashbourne Court, Scunthorpe, have been charged with murder and are due in magistrates court on Tuesday.
Police have said that the three men knew each other prior to the attack.
A Humberside Police spokesman said: “A 36-year-old man was found with wounds to his head at 6.40pm after reportedly being stabbed with a garden fork.
“He was taken to hospital and remained in a critical condition, but has today (Monday 26 April) sadly died from his injuries.”
Detective Chief Inspector Christine Calvert said: “Although this was an isolated incident between individuals known to each other, we appreciate such a tragic incident of this nature has caused shock to the local community.
“Our neighbourhood team continue to be on hand to speak to residents about any concerns they may have. We encourage you to speak with these officers.
“Our thoughts are with the man’s family and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.”
The attack happened just two hours before a man was stabbed on the corner of nearby Duncombe Street and Freeman Street.
Anna Królikowska, 27, of Duncombe Street appeared at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court charged with the murder of the 32-year-old Adam Królikowski.
Ms Królikowska will make her first Grimsby Crown Court appearance on Wednesday, April 28.
The incidents are not related, according to police.
