Murder Investigation After Stabbing On Birmingham Bus
A man in his 30s has died after being stabbed on a bus in Birmingham.
West Midlands Police have been updating Heart with the latest on their murder investigation after a man from the Smethwick area was stabbed to death by a stranger after a fight on a bus in Handsworth...
Police were called at around 11.45pm last night to Rookery Road in Handsworth to reports a passenger had been attacked on the 11A heading towards the city centre.
The victim was found on the upper deck of the bus.
West Midlands Police said in a statement: "Emergency services carried out CPR at the scene, but unfortunately the man died a short time later from his injuries.
"He has not been formally identified at this stage.''
Officers are carrying out urgent inquiries to trace the offender, described as a black man, in his 30s, wearing a baseball cap and a padded jacket.
Rookery Road remains closed this morning along with part of Oxhill Road and Greenhill Road that have been cordoned off while forensic inquiries take place.
Detectives are asking for anyone who travelled on the 11A bus last night, heading towards the city centre and who may have seen what happened to call police on 101.
Temporary Superintendent Tom Chisholm, of West Midlands Police, said: "The investigation is in the early stages but it is believed the man was stabbed following an altercation between him and the offender.
"I am appealing for anyone who was travelling on the bus last night and who has information or anyone who saw the offender after leaving the bus to call police.''
A new building has opened to help support families deal with loss at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
He was found guilty of 5 charges relating to children in the 1990's
He was only charged with the offence in 2001 last year
