POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland are investigating the death of a 31-year-old man following a “violent struggle” in Bangor.

The PSNI said today that the body of 31-year-old Stephen Davidson was found at his home in 18 Ballyholme Road by a relative at around 5pm on Sunday evening, 10 February.

We can say that he died as result of violent struggle, however we cannot give details of his injuries at this stage as a PM is to be held and this will also form part of the investigation.

Two people, a 30 female and a 40 year old male, were arrested shortly after 1pm today. The female is being held in Belfast and the male in Bangor.

The PSNI said it is believed Mr Davidson lived alone in house and to their knowledge was not employed.

We cannot say at this stage if he let attackers into house and are not in a position to say if drugs were involved. All this will also form part of the inquiry.

DCI Campbell appealed for anyone who knows of Stephen’s whereabouts between 9.30pm on Sat 9 February when they know he was seen in the Newtownards Road Bangor area, and shortly after 5pm on Sunday 10 Feb when he was found in his home, to contact police.

Police also appealed to any of the residents in the immediate area if they noticed any unusual activity at the house or people coming and going.

They also appealed to anyone who was at the house over the weekend to contact them at the Bangor incident room on 0845 600 8000.  Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
