A man wanted for murder after a stabbing in Brierley Hill has been arrested in Northfield after evading police for 11 months.
Mansoor Mahmood, 24, was found outside Dixi Chicken takeaway in Brierley Hill High Street on Saturday 15th October. Mahmood had been stabbed in the stomach after an altercation and died later on in hospital.
19 year old Niron Parker-Lee, formerly of Brierley Hill, was identified as a suspect soon after the incident. Despite police appeals, including being featured on BBC Crimewatch in February this year, Parker-Lee managed to evade arrest.
Officers investigating the murder of Mansoor Mahmood last October, have this afternoon (Thursday 31 August) arrested suspect Niron Parker-Lee.
He was arrested from an address in Northfield just after 4.30pm today (Thursday 31st August) on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.
