A man has been arrested after a 19-year-old was found dead with multiple stab wounds at her home in Birmingham this weekend.

The 25-year-old was arrested in Stoke-on-Trent last night (1st Aug) following "extensive CCTV" enquiries.

He'll be transferred to the West Midlands today for questioning.

Meanwhile, officers have named the 19-year-old victim as Brahane Yordanos, from Eritrea.

The force believe the suspect was known to Yordanos but the exact nature of the relationship is unclear at this stage.

Ambulance crews were called to at Brahane's home address in Unett Street in Newtown shortly after 6am on Saturday. She was found with stab wounds, but "nothing could be done to save her and she was pronounced dead at the scene."

Police say anyone with information should get in contact, quoting log 765 of 31/7.
