Birmingham stabbing victim named

His family have said they have ‘broken hearts’

A 23-year-old man stabbed to death on the dance floor of a nightclub in Birmingham on Boxing Day has been named by police.

Police were called to The Crane nightclub on Adderley Street in Digbeth just before 11.45pm on Boxing Day after reports that a 23-year-old had been stabbed.

Despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead around 30 minutes later, West Midlands Police said in a statement.

In a statement, a family member said: “They have broken our hearts; I have lost my best friend. My family and I are asking for privacy and respectfulness at this heart-breaking time.”

His family are being supported by specialist officers.

Police have launched an investigation into Fisher’s death and are appealing for witnesses.

Detectives are viewing CCTV from the nightclub and urge anyone who was in the area to get in touch.

Det Insp Michelle Thurgood, leading the investigation, said: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today.

“We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time. While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened.

“We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.”

Anyone with information has been asked to get in touch via Live Chat, quoting log 3792 of 26 December.
