A YOUNG man who was stabbed to death in broad daylight has been named as Mohammed Nabeel Hassan.

A police investigation is still under way after the 22-year-old was found unconscious with multiple stab wounds in a Glodwick street.

Mr Hassan was rushed to the Royal Oldham Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Officers are working with Mr Nabeel's family and residents to establish what happened in the minutes leading up to his death in Waterloo Street on Friday afternoon (March 9).

A 15-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man have been released under investigation whilst two men, aged 20 and 22, remain in custody for questioning.

Chief Superintendent Neil Evans, who is the territorial commander for GMP’s Oldham Borough, said: "Mohammed Nabeel’s family has to deal with the most tragic news but have been extremely calm and have supported us with our investigation, which I would like to thank them for.

"As we continue with our enquiries, I’d like to remind people that a man has tragically lost his life and speculation about what has happened is not helpful to the investigation nor to the family who are grieving the loss of their son, brother and friend.

"While we question people in custody, we need people to contact us with any information they have.

"Someone knows exactly what happened and who is responsible for bringing a premature end to Mohammed Nabeel’s life. Whatever it is that you know, please, make that call."

The emergency services were called to Waterloo Street near to the junction of Greengate Street at around 3.20pm on Friday, March 9.

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 2455 quoting reference number 1293 of March 9, 2018, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
