Police have launched a murder inquiry after a 75-year-old man was stabbed to death.
Officers were called by the ambulance service to Little Green Lane, in Small Heath, Birmingham, just after 10.30pm last night after reports that a man had suffered serious injuries.
The 75-year-old, who has not yet been named, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead just after 11pm.
A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out later to determine the exact cause of death.
Detective Inspector Martin Slevin, from West Midlands Police, said: "We are in the very early stages of this investigation and the motive for the attack remains unclear.
"Today we will be examining CCTV footage and speaking to local residents who who may have seen something last night.
"We really want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything out of the ordinary.
"Did you see anything suspicious between 10.15pm and 10.30pm in Little Green Lane? If you have any information that could help our investigation, please call as soon as possible."
Anyone with any information about what happened is asked to call West Midlands Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
