Murder investigation launched after man fatally stabbed at Walsall nightclub
Details of Incident
We have launched a murder investigation after a man was fatally stabbed at a Walsall nightclub. We’re appealing for witnesses, mobile phone footage or any other information that could help the investigation.
We were called to Valesha’s nightclub on Newport Street in Walsall town centre just after 5am on Saturday (11 March) to reports that a 29-year-old had been stabbed.
While being taken to hospital and despite efforts to save him, he was sadly pronounced dead at around 6am.
His family has been told and are being supported by specialist officers.
Detectives are viewing CCTV from the nightclub and understand a scuffle took place prior to the stabbing.
People who were in the club at the time might not have realised what had happened, and are urged to come forward.
Detective Inspector Ade George, leading the investigation, said: “The events this morning are tragic and shocking, a man has sadly lost his life and we will be offering as much support as we can to his family during this deeply distressing time.
“Our priority is catching those responsible. While we’ve spoken to a number of people who were inside the club at the time, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who saw, or may have filmed, what happened.”
We would ask anyone with any mobile phone footage or other information to submit direct into the investigation using the link below:
