Murder enquiry launched following stabbing in Wolverhampton

West Midlands Police have launched a murder enquiry after a man was stabbed in a Wolverhampton street yesterday (13 July).

Officers received a 999 call just after 5.20pm reporting a man having been attacked with a machete in Chervil Rise, Wolverhampton. 

The victim - who is believed to be in his 20s - was pronounced dead at the scene and they've cordoned off the area for a full forensic examination.

It's understood the offender ran off on foot and they're now appealing for witnesses to get in touch.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed what happened, or who saw a man running away, is asked to message the force on Live Chat via their website or call 101 quoting log 3705 from 13 July.
