A 14-year-old girl has been charged with the murder of a man in West Sussex.
Police said the victim, who has been named as 24-year-old Nimroy Hendricks, was found with fatal chest wounds in Three Bridges, Crawley on Tuesday night.
He died at the scene on Russell Way, despite being treated by paramedics and an air ambulance.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Wolstenholme, from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, said: “The circumstances of this case are particularly challenging for everyone involved and will continue to be difficult as people come to terms with significant loss and grief.
“It is imperative that the criminal justice system is allowed to operate effectively in order to support all involved in this case and therefore, I would make a personal plea to people to not speculate on social media on the circumstances of the case or the identity or motivation of the defendant, whose name may not legally be published.”
The girl is expected to face court later on Friday.
