Third suspect arrested in Moss Side murder

A third person was arrested last night, Monday 16 May, as part of the Abdul Hafidah murder investigations.

The 19-year-old man  from Moss Side remains in police custody for questioning alongside another man of the same who was arrested on Sunday 15 May.

A 17-year-old boy, who was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder on Friday 13 May 2016, was bailed until 20 June 2016, pending further enquiries.

Abdul Hafidah, 18, was stabbed on the evening of Thursday 12 May, after being chased by a group of men and colliding with an oncoming car in Moss Lane East.

One of the neck stabbings and abdominal injuries the young man suffered, turned out to be fatal and he lost his life on Saturday.

Detective Chief Inspector Terry Crompton from GMP’s Major Incident Team said: “We continue to offer our support to Abdul’s family, who are understandably devastated at their loss. One of the key things we are asking the public is if anyone that may have been driving past around the time of the attack has any dash-cam or mobile phone footage”.

Anyone with information can contact police on 0161 856 9283, 101, or alternatively, information can be passed to the police anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
