Police name man who died in knife attack

Detectives have named a man who was fatally stabbed at the weekend as Ibrahim Ismail.

A murder inquiry was launched after the 23-year-old was found outside the Raxo Shisha lounge on Moseley Street, Highgate at around 3.30am on Saturday 17 December. He was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.

A forensic post mortem examination revealed he died as a result of receiving stab wounds to his chest and back.

Detective Inspector Paul Joyce, from West Midlands Police’s Homicide Team, is leading the investigation and continues to appeal for information.

He said: “We are still piecing together the circumstances of Mr Ismail’s death and would urge anyone with information to get in touch with my team.

“We are looking into reports that there was an altercation but if you saw anything – regardless of how insignificant you think it may be – and have not yet spoken to us, I would ask you to give me a call.”

Information can be passed directly to DI Joyce by calling 101 or, to speak anonymously, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
