The heroic grandmother who died while attempting to “break up a quarrel” in a pub has been identified as Karen Dempsey.

On Monday, just after 10 p.m., emergency services were summoned in response to allegations of a stabbing on Cherryfield Drive in Kirkby (August 22).

The grandmother, who was in her 50s, was discovered in a parking lot bleeding from a chest wound.

She was attempting to break up a brawl between two guys on a service road behind the Brambles pub, where she had previously worked, according to a local.

The men were asked to leave the Brambles pub because they were fighting, he claimed. They both went back behind the bar and started fighting.

When Karen attempted to break up the altercation, she was stabbed.

He continued by saying that she was a supporter of Liverpool FC who came into the bar to watch the Manchester United game.

She was described as a “beautiful person” and as “devoted to her grandchildren” by the man.

I am so sorry to learn that such a lovely woman was stolen from us too soon, R.I.P., read a tribute on social media today.

A man in his 30s reportedly also sustained puncture wounds to his arm and body.

In a hospital, he is receiving medical care for his wounds.

Police have stated that a 32-year-old male has been detained after turning himself in on suspicion of murder.

Additionally, a 38-year-old male was taken into custody nearby on s18 and assault suspicions.

A probe is currently being conducted, and forensic and witness inquiries have been made.

According to Detective Inspector Laura Lamping: “As we work to determine what happened, we are currently extremely early in the investigation process. We think there was a fight that began on the property and spilled outside.

“Sadly, a woman who was stabbed died as a result of her injuries. Two people are currently in our custody, but our investigations are still open.
