A TEENAGER has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of 16-year-old Rhamero West in Old Trafford.

A week ago, emergency services found Rhamero with multiple serious stab wounds on Norton Street.

They treated him at the scene and then took him to hospital, but he sadly died a short time afterwards.

Detectives have been piecing together a number of incidents in the lead up to the stabbing, like multiple crashes and incidents of violent disorder across the south of Manchester.

They have now arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of murder, who remains in custody for questioning.

Detective Chief Inspector Liz Hopkinson, from GMP's Major Incident Team, said: "This has been an incredibly fast-paced and complex investigation and detectives have been following multiple lines of enquiry as we piece together the events of the day.

"As always, our thoughts have been firmly with Rhamero's family as we investigate, and I'm pleased to say we have now made an arrest in connection with his death.

"It's worth stressing that although we have made this arrest, our investigation is continuing and we are still pursuing a number of potential suspects.

"Again, I appeal to members of the public who were in the area at the time and have CCTV, dashcam or mobile phone footage to come forward and assist us with our enquiries.

"The smallest bit of information could prove vital to our investigation and assist us in carrying out further arrests."

Anyone with CCTV, dashcam, or mobile phone footage is asked to submit it on GMP's Major Incident Public Portal.
