Teen stabbed to death in Birmingham city centre

The teenage boy who died after being stabbed in Birmingham this weekend has been named, as detectives renew their appeal for more information to help catch his killer.

Muhammad Hassam Ali, 17, died from his injuries after he was stabbed in Victoria Square, Birmingham on 20 January.

Now, Muhammad’s family has released a photo of their beloved son.

They are continuing to be supported by officers as our investigation continues and have requested their privacy be respected at this time.

Police are reviewing CCTV and carrying out further enquiries to establish who was responsible for Muhammad’s death, which is not being treated as gang-related.

Detective Inspector Michelle Thurgood, from our homicide team, said: “This is a tragic case of a young man being killed in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity.

“We are still trying to establish the motive and are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area just before 3.30pm yesterday.


“We are especially looking for any photos or video footage from the surrounding area which may help us identify those responsible.

“If you were walking through the area at the time, or a visitor who may have been taking pictures by The River statue near the Council House, we would like to hear from you as you may have vital information or evidence.”
