Murder probe after man stabbed to death in street
A man has been fatally stabbed in a Birmingham street prompting a murder investigation.
Officers found the victim, a man in his 20s, with serious injuries in Lozells Street, in the Lozells of the city, at just before 3.30pm on Sunday.
He was taken to hospital but was confirmed dead before arriving.
Firearms officers later stopped a car in Alum Rock Road and a 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.
The man - who is understood to be known to the victim - has been taken into police custody for questioning.
A section of Lozells Street was cordoned off into yesterday evening to enable officers to carry out enquiries.
Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from West Midlands Police's homicide unit, said: "A man has sadly lost his life at the hands of a knife and we are now working to establish exactly why this happened.
"Although a man has been arrested I would urge anyone with information which can help our enquiries to contact us."
Anyone with information can call police on 101 and quoting number 1597 of 17/11/19.
