THE police watchdog has confirmed it will take no further action over the death of a man who was Tasered by police after being found with stab wounds.
Dave Oldfield had suffered knife injuries when police entered his house on Poplar Square, Farsley, in the early hours of last Friday. (Oct 5)
Officers had been called out after a woman, believed to be his partner, had been stabbed and was bleeding in the street.
Oldfield, who was brandishing a knife, was Tasered by police before being taken to Leeds General Infirmary, where he died.
A post mortem confirmed the stab wounds had killed him.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said it had assessed the circumstances of the incident.
A spokesman said: “IPCC investigators were deployed to assess the incident and following this we have decided there is no requirement for an IPCC investigation into the police action.
“The decision takes into account the post mortem findings that the man died from stab wounds sustained prior to the police arriving at the address. We understand the full circumstances of the death will be examined at a future inquest.”
