A teenager was arrested after his 15-year-old sister was allegedly stabbed to death, his father injured and his grandfather taken hostage at a trailer park.
Teen, 19, arrested after 15-year-old sister stabbed to death
An air ambulance was flown to the scene, along with two ambulances, three rapid response vehicles and at least three police cars.
Officers confirmed that the 19-year-old had been arrested in connection with the “domestic incident.”
The teenager’s younger sister was stabbed to death and his father was seriously injured during the horror. It was also understood that his grandfather had been taken hostage in the “isolated” incident.
Tourists were left horrified by the weekend stabbing. Mother-of-two Carly Hargreaves, 44, who arrived for a break from Manchester on Friday, said, “To go on vacation and not go home to that special person is tragic.”
Kay Redhead, 41, mayor of Towyn and Kinmel Bay local council, said, “It has struck us to the core. This is a fantastic place where we welcome everyone. At this time of year, we have between 45,000 and 50,000 more people in the area, and with the vacations at home, it’s really bustling.”
North Wales Police confirmed that the bloodbath is being treated as an “isolated incident” and said there was no risk to the public.
Detective Superintendent Mark Pierce said, “We would like to thank the staff and management of Ty Mawr, and the local and holidaying public, for their support as we carry out our investigations.
“Our thoughts are with the family who are being supported by specially trained officers at this time. We would urge anyone with information to contact us on 101.”
A spokesman for 100-acre Ty Mawr Holiday Park said, “We are shocked and saddened that such a tragic situation has occurred in such a safe and happy environment where families come to relax.”
