Detectives investigating the death of James Brindley in Aldridge have arrested a man and a teenager on suspicion of his murder.
The arrests were made yesterday evening (Wednesday 12 July) and the man, aged 20, and 17-year-old boy, both local, remain in police custody for questioning.
On Tuesday this week James’ parents made an emotional plea for information to catch their son’s killer and detectives have been working tirelessly to follow every lead.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mallett, from the homicide team, said: “Although we have made two arrests we are still asking people to come forward with any information they have, no matter how insignificant it may seem.”
James was stabbed to death on the High Street by The Croft on the evening of Friday 23 June as he made his way home.
Anyone with information is urged to contact DCI Mallett’s team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. A reward of £10,000 is available on conviction of James’ killer.
