A murder investigation has been launched after a 22-year-old man was stabbed in Bartley Green last night (3 July).

Police were called to Lye Road in Birmingham at around 10:50pm. A man was taken to hospital and died shortly after.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in custody.

A large police tent has been put up at the scene over a grassed area outside an end-of-terrace property, while a smaller covering was placed on the pavement nearby.

Residents said the man who died lived with his parents locally. A witness who saw efforts to help the victim told the Press Association:

I just heard loads of young adults crying and asking for help and doing CPR on him.
