Prestatyn incident update

Police have arrested another person on suspicion of manslaughter following an incident in Prestatyn last Saturday evening when a local man 42 year old Jonathan Sillett, died.


The 20 year old man has been bailed pending further inquiries.


Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Graham Talbot says that this now takes the total number of people arrested in connection with the incident to nine.


He said: “I am aware that in recent days there has been mention of vehicles driving erratically and we did receive a call about this last Saturday night. I am, however, able to confirm that until this incident North Wales Police had not received any reports by the public of anti social behaviour involving vehicles in the area of Beach Road, Prestatyn, within the last 12 months.”


“Prestatyn is one of the safest and quietest areas in North Wales and the recent tragic event when Mr Sillett died would appear to be an isolated incident”


“I can assure the public that we take incidents of this nature extremely seriously and the matter is being fully investigated and Local Neighbourhood Policing staff will continue to provide visible policing presence in the area in order to reassure the community.”


Anyone with any information or is asked to call North Wales Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
