Man Dies After Brierley Hill Stabbing

A man has died after being stabbed in the stomach during an attack in Brierley Hill.

Police and paramedics were called to the High Street at around 4.45pm following reports a man had been attacked with a knife outside the Dixi Chicken diner.

The man, believed to be 24-years-old, was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but later pronounced dead; specially-trained officers are currently supporting the man’s family.

The High Street has been cordoned off for forensic examination while detectives are also holding another scene in a nearby wooded area. A spokesperson for the force said:

"Clearly it is early days in the investigation but we strongly suspect this was a targeted attack and that the two people involved may have known each other.

"We have spoken to some witnesses already but we're sure there are many more people who saw what happened, or saw the offender running away, and have not yet spoken to police.

"We’d urge them to call us now on the 101 number. Anyone with information who would prefer to speak to someone anonymously can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111."
