“There is a solid line of inquiry that we are following and investigations continue,” he said.
Police have earlier said they believe the parties are known to one another, and it was not a random attack.

Police door-knocked the neighbourhood and seized several items of interest including clothing from the house, where blood stains littered the driveway.
