Stab victim named as police arrest man over his murder

A man found stabbed to death in Halesowen has been named as Stuart Roe as police confirm a man has been arrested in connection with his death.

Mr Roe was found with fatal stab wounds in Springfield Drive at around 1:45am shortly after it’s understood he was attacked in the street.

The 34-year-old, from Quarry Bank High Street, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A murder investigation was launched and later that day − at around 4pm − a 57-year-old man from Tipton was arrested from outside an address in Halesowen’s Greenhill Road. He remains in West Midlands Police custody today for questioning.

Enquiries made by the force’s Homicide Unit have revealed that Mr Roe visited the Britannia pub in Halesowen Street, Rowley Regis, at around 1am. Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield said she is keen to hear from anyone who was in the pub at around the time. She added:

“We know Mr Roe was in the Britannia pub for a short period of time at around 1am. I’d like anyone who was in the pub to get in touch as they may unwittingly have important information.

“We’ve now released an image of Mr Roe; I really need anyone who believes they may have seen him in the pub that night − or making his way towards Springfield Drive − to contact us as soon as possible.

“There is also the possibility that anyone driving near the scene or who lives nearby may have recorded vital evidence on dash-cams or CCTV − so again I’d ask them to check the video and get in touch if they believe they have footage of interest."

The homicide team can be contacted via Live Chat at between 8am and midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
