Detective chief inspector Peter Stableford reportedly spoke to journalists outside the Fun Zone restaurant where the attack took place.

He said: “We need to hear from anyone who was at the party but right now persons who were there are not talking to us. 

“We know that people saw what happened and we would urge them to do the right thing by Osagi and tell us.”

A Police spokesperson told The Sun: “Officers were at King Edward Memorial Hospital in connection with another matter, when they were alerted to the victim who was brought into the Emergency Department in a non-responsive state, with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds.

“The victim was transported to the hospital via private vehicle. Details are at this time-limited.

“A scene has now been established in the area of Fun Zone, Wallers Point Road, St. Georges.”

The sporting star signed for Bristol City in February 2017. He played for their under-23s team for the rest of the season before joining Darlington FC.

He also played for his native Bermuda 18 times and scored one goal for the country.

In response to the tragedy, a spokesperson for Darlington Football Club said: “The club is devastated to learn of the passing of former player Osagi Bascome.

“Osagi joined the club in 2019 playing a memorable role in our FA Cup tie at Walsall. Everyone from the club’s thoughts are with Osagi’s family and friends.”
