Manchester double stabbing: Murder charge after man killed and another injured in Ancoats area

Written by on 25 April 2022

A 23-year-old man has been charged with murder after a double stabbing in Manchester.

Police said Neri Morse, 24, was pronounced dead at the scene following the incident in Pollard Street, in the Ancoats area at around 6.30pm on Wednesday.

Another man, in his 20s, was taken to hospital and treated for leg injuries.

Rushaun Brown, of Higher Ardwick, has now been charged with murder, section 18 assault and possession of a bladed article and is due to appear in court.

A second 23-year-old man remains in police custody on suspicion of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Wes Knights, of Greater Manchester Police’s Major Incident Team, said: “We have made swift progress in the investigation into Neri’s death, including making two arrests and bringing a murder charge.

“But the investigation is still very much active as the team continues to pursue all lines of enquiry and we will be speaking to all of those involved in this incident.

“We would implore any witnesses, including those on the street and in vehicles in the area at the time of the incident, to come forward with any information.

“No matter how insignificant you may think that information might be, it could be crucial in a complex investigation such as this and my team of detectives will explore all information provided.

“There are a number of simple ways to contact police and provide information, including the uploading of CCTV and other media to our dedicated major incident public portal.”

Brown is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
