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.

They were waiting for the ambulance.

My husband knows the lad who has died, he was a quiet lad and it's just shocking.
