A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder after two men were fatally stabbed in Brierley Hill last week.

A 46-year-old man was arrested in Stoke-on Trent on Sunday (February 23) and will be questioned by detectives today over the deaths of Khuzaimah Douglas and Waseem Ramzan.

A 42-year-old man was also detained in Stoke on suspicion of assisting an offender and has since been released on police bail.

The arrests come as the investigation continues into the fatal stabbing of two men on Pensnett Road during a cannabis factory robbery during the early hours of Thursday, February 20.

Police have also now charged a 19-year-old man who was arrested last week in connection to the disorder on Pensnett Road.

Micah Evans has been charged with conspiracy to rob, conspiracy to burgle and perverting the course of justice.

He is due to appear before magistrates in Wolverhampton today (February 24).

Meanwhile two men, aged 23 and 21-years-old, who were arrested over the weekend in Holyhead Port in Wales on suspicion of conspiracy to rob have been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

A total of five people have now been arrested in connection with last Thursday's events, but police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward with information.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro from our Homicide Unit, said: “Although this is a significant development in our investigation I am still appealing for witnesses or anyone who was in the Pensnett Road area in the early hours of Thursday morning to get in touch.

“People may have witnessed the disorder, individuals or vehicles leaving the scene, or seen something suspicious. We need them to get in touch as every piece of information, no matter how small, could be crucial.

“I’d also like to hear from any motorists who were in the area at the time and have dashcam footage as they also may have recorded something important."

Dudley Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Sally Bourner, added: “These are significant developments in this fast moving investigation. Local officers continue to provide reassurance in the area. Longer term we are working with partners including the council, health, education and charities to tackle violent crime and the root causes of violence."

Anyone with information should contact West Midlands Police on 101.
