Man, 20, stabbed to death in Liverpool city centre named by police

The man who died after being stabbed in Liverpool city centre has been named by police as Fatah Warsame.

The 20-year-old, from the Cardiff area, was the victim of a knife attack in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police were called to a popular nightclub spot in the city centre at about 4am and paramedics took Fatah to hospital, however he later died from his injuries.

No one has been arrested and investigations are ongoing.

Detective Superintendent Lee Turner said: "Knife crime will not be tolerated in Merseyside and those caught carrying a weapon will be brought to justice.

"Carrying or using any dangerous weapon does not offer protection and in fact often puts you and those around you at more risk. These weapons can have severe consequences and we will not stand for this criminal behaviour."

Taxi drivers have been urged to share CCTV footage from their cabs, if they were in the area at the time.

Taxi Alliance Liverpool have sent out several messages to their fellow drivers and posted on Twitter calling on drivers to “do the right thing” after the young man’s tragic stabbing death.

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson also echoed calls for anyone with information to share that with police too.

He wrote on social media: “Anyone who has any information on the horrific fatal stabbing that took place on Hanover Street in city centre please, please contact @MerseyPolice we need to catch the person responsible quickly.

"Another senseless act leaving a family heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.”

Anyone who witnessed what happened is urged to call 101, @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111 or contact the police’s social media desk @MerPolCC as a matter of urgency.
