Detective Superintendent Andrew Massingham said police believed the 41-year-old man had been stabbed near his house.
‘We believe he was stabbed near to where he fell,’ he said.
‘These scenes are horrific. These cowardly attacks are abhorrent, no place for them in society.’
Police set up a crime scene and launched an investigation into the death of the man.
