'Intruder' killed during burglary
A man who was arrested on suspicion of murder after a suspected intruder was stabbed to death in Greater Manchester, has been released on police bail.

Businessman Vincent Cooke, 39, who was home alone during the break-in, was bailed until mid-October, police said.

The stabbing took place at his home on Midland Road, in Bramhall, Stockport, at 19:50 BST on Saturday.

Police found Raymond Jacobs, aged in his 30s, with fatal knife injuries after they were called to the house.

A 33-year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and police have recovered a white Citroen van after issuing a witness appeal.

Raymond Jacob's family left flowers outside the Cookes' house Mr Vincent's wife and their 12-year-old son arrived at the house during the incident and managed to escape unharmed.

'Love you son'

Floral tributes to Mr Jacob have been left outside the large detached house in the affluent suburb.

One tribute read: "Love you son. Going to miss you more than anything."

A post-mortem examination has concluded that he died from stab wounds.

A gold Maserati sports car and a silver Range Rover, with personalised registration plates, and a large white Transit van were parked on the driveway of the house.

Third incident

A neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said: "I'm staggered. I can't imagine something like that happening here.

"I don't think the family have lived here for long."

Ch Supt Tim Forber said detectives were carrying out a "thorough investigation".

He said he could not comment on whether anyone else was injured or if the intruders were known to the householder.

It is the third incident of its kind in Greater Manchester in the last four months.

In June, Peter Flanagan, 59, fatally stabbed an intruder at his home in Salford.

In July, florist Cecil Coley, 72, stabbed a burglar at his shop in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of murder following the stabbings, but were later released without charge as the Crown Prosecution Service ruled they acted in reasonable self-defence
