The man received treatment, but died at the scene.
Mr Baker said: “I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of this terrible incident in North Walsham on Friday night. This sort of awful crime just does not happen in our communities in north Norfolk. North Walsham is always a brilliant and safe community.
“I was in the town on Saturday to meet members of the local policing team and to walk around the town with them. Once again our emergency service have been brilliant and our local police were a reassuring presence in the town when so many are terribly shocked.”
He said his thoughts were with the victim’s family.
