Sparkhill stabbing victim named
Detectives investigating a fatal stabbing in Sparkhill have named the victim as Malik Hussain – as a plea for dash cam footage to assist the murder probe is launched.
The 35-year-old was found with serious injuries in Baker Street and was sadly confirmed dead at the scene soon afterwards.
Officers are keen to hear from motorists who were in and around Baker Street, Warwick Road, Stratford Road and surrounding roads within the Sparkhill area.
It is believed dash cam footage could have captured a car they want to identify as enquiries to catch the killer of Mr Hussain, from Small Heath, continue.
Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from the force’s homicide team, said:
“We are working round the clock to find whoever was responsible for Mr Hussain’s death and are following a number of active lines of enquiry.
“However, I am particularly keen to recover any dash cam footage which could be crucial in identifying a car which fled Baker Street soon after the stabbing.
“We believe this could be key in helping us to catch the killer and would ask anyone who can help to come forward as soon as possible.”
