A 21-year-old has now been arrested on suspicion of murder following a fatal stabbing last night.

Two men have now been arrested in connection with the incident in Bartley Green, Birmingham. A 16-year-old boy remains in custody.

West Midlands Police have thanked the public for their support and added they do not believe it to be gang related.

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.

– Local neighbourhood Superintendent Mat Shaer
