A man who died after being found with stab wounds in Crawley has been named as Nimroy Hendricks.

The 24-year-old was found with stab wounds on Russell Way in Three Bridges on Tuesday evening (October 27).

A 14-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with murder.

She is also charged with possessing a knife in a public place.

Despite specialist care from paramedics and an air ambulance doctor, he was declared dead at the scene.

The 14-year-old girl, from Crawley, was detained by police in south London at around 10.20pm on Wednesday (October 28).

A 21-year-old man from London was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Lakiem Khan, a local resident and owner of a taxi company, says the town was "shaken" by the events.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Wolstenholme from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: “The circumstances of this case are particularly challenging for everyone involved and will continue to be difficult as people come to terms with significant loss and grief.

"It is imperative that the Criminal Justice system is allowed to operate effectively in order to support all involved in this case and therefore, I would make a personal plea to people to not speculate on social media on the circumstances of the case or the identity or motivation of the defendant, whose name may not legally be published."
