A woman has been stabbed to death in a taxi at the junction of Dimsdale Road and Hoggs Lane in Northfield at around 8am this morning, reported West Midlands.

DCI Wayne Jones, from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, said, “Officers have sealed off the scene of this incident, and are making significant enquiries in the local area, as we conduct searches for a man who we believe ran from the scene.

“We appeal for witnesses to the incident to come forward as well as anyone who may have been in the area and seen a man running from the vicinity of Dimsdale Road and Hoggs Lane at around 8am today,” he added.
