Neighbors found the person immersed in his blood in a residential building on “Älggatan” in the “Limhamn” suburb in Malmö this afternoon.
One of the neighbors had seen the victim lying on the stairs and bleeding from his chest and abdomen and called 112 for an ambulance.
When police arrived they found traces of blood indicating that the victim was stabbed in his apartment and then tried to walk out and call for help, before he fainted on the stairs.
Medics tried to stop the bleeding and save the injured man, who was rushed to the hospital between life and death, but he did not survive his injuries and died this evening.
Police have arrested a 45 year-old man on suspicion of committing the crime based on the testimony of witnesses.
Initially, the charge was assault that led to serious injuries, but it turned into attempted murder after the death of the victim.
Kristofer Napiorkowski, police inspector in Malmö, said that the offender is known to them and he has been detained twice in the past year because of his assault on other people.
