Second arrest made in fatal stabbing murder investigation

A second person has been arrested following the fatal stabbing in Bartley Green last night.

A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a 22-year-old man who was stabbed in Woodgate Gardens, Bartley Green.

The 16-year old boy who was arrested on suspicion of murder last night remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison said: “We are making real progress in the investigation, I’d like to thank the community for their continued support and ask that anyone who has any information who hasn’t yet come forward gets in touch as soon as possible.”

Local neighbourhood Superintendent Mat Shaer added: “We do not believe this to be gang-related, but are aware of some anti-social behaviour concerns within the area which we are addressing.

“We are putting a lot of work into tackling knife crime and ask that the public remains vigilant, reporting any concerns they have in their area. I would remind those who carry knives that they not only increase the risk of harm to others, but also to themselves.”

Information can be given on 101 ext 863 3039 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
