A reward of up to £10,000 is being offered through crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person/s responsible for the fatal stabbing of Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham. [10 May 2013]

The incident occurred just before 10.30pm on Monday 29 April as the 73-year-old victim walked home from the Green Lane Mosque, along Little Green Lane, Small Heath. 

CCTV footage has been captured of a man running along Wyndcluffe Road, near to the Mohammed’s murder. This footage can be found on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suwwENGXMpA&list=UUX4ZHRgrnJxLoxFZJHwueMA&index=3. Crimestoppers is asking the public to contact us anonymously if you recognise the individual in the images.

Crimestoppers is offering this reward of up to £10,000 to anyone who passes on information to the charity’s anonymous 0800 555 111 number that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for this murder.

Crimestoppers Chairman of the West Midlands Committee, Dan Gibbin, said: "This is a sad and traumatic time for the family and friends of Mohammed and as a charity we want to do all we can to help them at this time by identifying those responsible for this brutal attack.

"The individuals involved should not be allowed to get away with this crime, please contact us anonymously with any information you have, no matter how small, so that they can be identified and face justice accordingly.

“Someone must recognise the man in the CCTV footage. If you do, please do the right thing and call 0800 555 111 and tell us who he is, not who you are. As well as bringing a form of comfort to this grieving family you will also be eligible for a reward of up to £10,000.”

To be eligible for the reward, information must be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Information can be given via our Anonymous Online Form, but will not be eligible for a reward. Information given directly to the police will also not be eligible for the reward.
