Kevin Malthouse died Saturday 1st July 2017, aged 24
A former Non League player has died after being stabbed in a late night brawl.
Former Tilbury midfielder Kevin Malthouse played 23 times for the Dockers 2011-14 with a number of injuries limiting his action on the pitch.
Malthouse from Stanford Le Hope, suffered multiple wounds during a disturbance in Blackshots Lane, Grays, in the early hours of Saturday. Three other men are being treated for injuries believed to be life threatening.
An 18 year old man from Tilbury, who suffered a chest wound, another 18 year old man from Tilbury, who suffered a serious stomach wound, and a 39 year old man from the Corringham area, who suffered a stomach wound, are all being treated at Basildon hospital.
Police said they were called, along with ambulance services, at 12.35a.m. to reports of a number of men fighting in Blackshots Lane. Paramedics tried to save Malthouse’s life but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident is believed to be linked to another assault reported to police at 1.55a.m. in which an 18 year old man suffered a head injury and was knocked unconscious in Fleming Road, Chafford Hundred.
He was taken to hospital for treatment and later arrested on suspicion of murder. Two other men, a 22 year old from Grays and a 21 year old from South Ockendon, were also arrested on suspicion of murder.
