A TEENAGER has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was stabbed to death in CastleBromwich on Tuesday.

Kelvin Ward was found with serious injuries at around 8.15pm on Chester Road.

It is believed that the car he was travelling in was rammed by another vehicle at the junction of Windward Way.

He was attacked by a number of people who fled the scene.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested yesterday morning on suspicion of murder and will be questioned by detectives.

Kelvin’s family have released this statement: “We would like to thank everyone for their loving messages and support at this very sad time. Kelvin was a loving partner, father, son, brother and friend to many.

“He was very well loved, vibrant, full of life and will be greatly missed.”

Detectives investigating Kelvin’s death are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident to come forward, if they haven’t already done so.

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Sanders, who is leading the investigation, said: “Our thoughts remain with Kelvin’s family at this deeply distressing time.

“It’s important that we understand what happened and that we get answers for Kelvin’s family.

“I’m really keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and anyone who has any dashcam footage, to get in touch. It could be vital to our investigation.”
