Man charged with fatal stabbing in Birmingham

Police have charged a man with murder following the death of a young man found stabbed in a Birmingham street on Friday night.

Amin Talea was discovered by a passer-by in Middleton Hall Road at 9.30pm with a stab wound to his abdomen that would ultimately prove fatal.

The 20-year-old was sadly pronounced dead in the hospital the following morning.

Police have a specially trained family liaison officer supporting his loved ones and they have agreed for us to release Amin’s photo on their behalf.

A statement on behalf of his family reads: “Rest in paradise Amin Talea. You had a pure soul and contagious energy. You will be missed by many. We will carry your legacy through.

“A massive thank-you to the police who have been supportive through this devastating time and thank you to everyone who has been supporting us especially friends, family and the neighbourhood, the love doesn’t go un-noticed.

“I wouldn’t wish this on anybody. Sleep Tight Angel Boy.”

We arrested a teenager in Selly Oak at around midday on Saturday and he’s now been charged over the killing.

Ridhwaan Farouk, aged 19, has now been charged with murder and remanded into prison having appeared in court yesterday.

Detective Inspector Ade George, from the force’s homicide unit, is leading the enquiry. He said: “This young man has lost his life in the most tragic of circumstances and we are determined to get justice for his family.

“Our enquiries continue and I would still like to hear from anyone with information who has not yet contacted us to please get in touch.”
