Police have  launched a murder enquiry after a man was stabbed in a Wolverhampton street today (13 July).

Officers received a 999 call just after 5.20pm reporting a man having been attached with a machete in Chervil Rise, Wolverhampton. 

The victim – who is believed to be in his 20s – was pronounced dead at the scene and we’ve cordoned off the area for a full forensic examination.

It’s understood the offender ran off on foot and we’re now appealing for witnesses to get in touch.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed what happened, or who saw a man running away, is asked to message us on Live Chat via our website or call 101 quoting log 3707 from 13 July.
