Murder investigation launched after Dudley stabbing

We have launched a murder investigation after a man was fatally stabbed in Dudley last night.

Officers were called to Spring Pool Meadow in the Russell’s Hall area of Dudley just before 7pm, where an 19-year-old man was found with a stab wound to his back. Sadly, the man died at the scene, despite the best efforts of members of the public who rushed to his aid. 

A 20-year-old man and two teenagers, aged 15 and 16, have been arrested on suspicion of murder overnight and remain in police custody this morning. DCI Jim Munro from the Homicide team, said: 

“I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened last night to get in touch with us as soon as possible. I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw a group of people on Spring Pool Meadow and could help give us descriptions of those who were involved.

“We are committed to finding those responsible and won’t stop until we do. If you know anything, no matter how small, please talk to us."

Dudley Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Sally Bourner, added: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this young man who has sadly died. 

“This is an awful incident and we recognise the wider impact it can have on our communities. Our local neighbourhood teams will be out in the area providing reassurance and we are working hard with partners as a top priorty to tackle violence, which has no place in our borough.”

Enquiries continue and anyone with information is urged to contact officers via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, or call 101 anytime.
