Man arrested after minibus driver fatally stabbed on own doorstep

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a minibus driver on his own doorstep in what police have called a "brutal attack".

Sajid Hussain died from stab wounds inflicted outside his family home in Tenby Road, Moseley, Birmingham, on Sunday night.

Mr Hussain, known locally as "Saj", was taken to hospital but succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Neighbours said he had been outside having a cigarette when he was attacked, and described him as a "hard-working family man".

His death has shocked the community.

West Midlands Police said they arrested a 23-year-old local man on Wednesday and he is now being questioned by detectives.

Meanwhile, Detective Inspector Paul Joyce, leading the investigation, said: "Even though we have arrested a suspect, our investigation is very much ongoing and I would still like to hear from anyone who witnessed this brutal attack.

"The victim's family members have been fully updated and are being supported as they try to come to terms with their loss."
