Ncube – known as ‘Percy’ to friends, family and neighbours – died after suffering a single stab wound to the chest on Dukesgate Grove in Little Hulton at 2.40am. Her children are believed to have rushed to her as she lay dying in the street.

Said police in a statement, “At around 2.40am on Friday 10 November 2023, officers were called reports of a woman who had been found with serious injuries on Dukesgate Grove in Little Hulton, Worsley.

Perseverance was found with a single stab injury to the chest, she was taken to hospital where she sadly died as a result of her injuries.”

The statement added; “Greater Manchester Police are appealing to any motorists and residents in the area, who may have captured anything that may be of relevance to the investigation on Dashcam, CCTV or doorbell cameras to contact us.”

In a tribute Ncube’s family said: “It is with immense pain that we say goodbye to Perseverance Ncube, also known as Percy to her loved ones. She was a loving and devoted mother who lived for her children, family, and friends.

“Percy was an active member of her church and had created a beautiful community for herself and her children, but she was cruelly taken from us due to domestic violence. Percy had just celebrated her 35th birthday in October, and her passing has left us with an immeasurable sense of loss.

“Our focus now is on supporting her children as they continue their journey without their mother. With love from Percy’s family.”
