A man has been charged with murder following the suspected stabbing of a 49-year-old man in the Arthur’s Hill area of Newcastle.
Shortly after 6 am on Monday, officers responded to reports of a man injured at an address on Dilston Road. Emergency services attended and found a man with serious injuries consistent with having been caused by a bladed article.
Sadly, despite the best efforts of medical staff, 49-year-old Beimnet Gebreab, of Newcastle, died as a result of his injuries and a murder investigation was subsequently launched.
A man was arrested on suspicion of murder and was brought into police custody. The man arrested - Yasim Ismael, 38, of Dilston Road, Newcastle – has since been charged with Beimnet’s murder. He will appear before magistrates in Newcastle on Wednesday, November 16.
Yesterday Detective Chief Inspector Angela Hudson, of Northumbria Police, said: “This is a serious incident which has sadly resulted in a man’s death and we are determined to establish exactly what happened. We have launched a full investigation and have arrested one man as part of our enquiries. At this early stage, we believe all parties were known to each other and that there is no wider risk to the public.
“Our officers remain in the area to carry out a range of enquiries and offer reassurance to the public. Anyone with any concerns are encouraged to speak to them directly. I would also ask that anybody who saw anything in the early hours of this morning in this location or has any information that may assist our investigation to come forward and let us know.”
Anyone with information can contact police via the ‘Tell Us Something’ page of their website or by calling 101 quoting log NP-20221114-0120.”
