A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a man assaulted in his own home.

The suspect, from Rotherham, is currently in custody.

He has been arrested after the death of a 38-year-old man who was assaulted in his own home in Littlehey Close, Maltby, at about 1am on October 30.

He was still in hospital when he collapsed and died yesterday.

It comes just weeks after 80-year-old war veteran Tommy Ward was brutally attacked in his own home in Maltby and robbed of his £30,000 life savings.
