I don’t usually repost our witness appeals as the relevant section on the force’s website does the job well enough without me, having noticed though that quite a few people are finding my blog after searching for information on yesterday’s tragic murder of Christina Edkins, a few words here would seem useful.
Going from today’s press release, detectives investigating the attack are keen to trace the movements of the suspect before and after the stabbing itself which occurred on the number nine bus on Hagley Road, Birmingham, at around 07:30 yesterday morning.
A male was arrested under suspicion of murder shortly afterwards, he has been described as black, in his early twenties, carrying a white bag and wearing a distinctive ‘tiger print’ jacket as pictured above.
Officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the stabbing, however the weapon used in the attack is yet to be located and members of the public providing officers with possible sightings may well narrow down the search for this very important piece of evidence.
If you recall seeing a male matching the above description, were on the number nine bus or can provide any other information on the incident then please don’t hesitate to call us on 101.
