Murder victim Bile Siyad

Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of a man in a Birmingham street have charged a man with murder.

Abdul Khaya was last night charged with murdering father-of-two Bile Mohammed Siyad on Coventry Road in Small Heath in the early hours of Saturday morning (3/11).

It’s alleged Khaya stabbed the 41-year-old in the head with a knife following a dispute over money.

Mr Siyad, also aged 41, was treated by paramedics following the 5am attack but sadly later died in hospital.
