Detectives investigating a fatal stabbing in Wolverhampton yesterday afternoon (13 July), have released details of a man they are searching for.

Sean Bulle, aged 20, is being sought over the killing of Paulius Petrasiunas, 24, just before 5:20pm.

In an online statement, West Midlands Police said "We’ve been following a number of lines of enquiry to trace Bulle, but he has not yet been arrested.
"We immediately launched a murder investigation after receiving a 999 call reporting a man having been attacked with a machete in Chervil Rise. He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. A post mortem is due to be carried out tomorrow."

Mr Petrasiunas, who leaves behind a son aged one, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. A post mortem is due to be carried out tomorrow.

Mr Petrasiunas' family said today: “Rest in peace, I love you so much and always will. Your little sister will miss you too. We will love you forever my beautiful angel.”

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon, leading the investigation, said: “We’ve been working hard to establish what happened yesterday afternoon and are following up a number of lines of enquiry.

“We believe Bulle may have been involved and I’m asking for your help in tracing him.

“If anyone knows where he is or thinks they may have seen him, I’d urge them to our incident room on 101, extension 861 3026 immediately. 

“Anyone who may be shielding him through a sense of misguided loyalty, should be aware that they are committing an offence and could be prosecuted.

“It’s vitally important that we speak to Bulle. My message to him, is to do the right thing and let us know where you are."

Anyone who sees Bulle is asked not to approach him but contact us immediately.
