Janbaz Tarin West Midlands Police

Murder suspect named after mother and daughter 'stabbed to death in street' in England

No arrests have yet been made.

LAST UPDATE | 27 Aug 2018

POLICE IN THE UK have issued a photo of a man they are searching after a mother and her daughter were found stabbed to death in the street this morning. 

Janbaz Tarin (21) is being sought over the killed his former partner, Raneem Oudeh, and her mother, Khaola Saleem. 

Police were called to Northdown Road in Solihull just after 12.20am and discovered the two women, aged 22 and 49, with serious stab wounds.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services they were pronounced dead at the scene, which is outside the mother’s house. 

Officers from across West Midlands Police have been following a number of lines of enquiry to trace Tarin, but he has not yet been arrested.

The area has been cordoned off while examinations are carried out and CCTV is being examined.

Officers are also carrying out house to house enquiries and there will be a visible presence in the area over the coming days to provide community reassurance.

“We’ve been working flat out to apprehend Tarin since the early hours of this morning, following up on a number of enquiries,” Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield, leading the investigation, said.


As police have so far not been able to locate Tarin, Corfield has asked for the public’s help in tracing him. 

“If anyone knows where he is or thinks they may have been seen, I’d urge them to ring 999 immediately. If there’s anyone out there who may be shielding him through a sense of misguided loyalty, they need to be aware that they are committing an offence and will be prosecuted,” she said. 

My message to Tarin would be that it’s vitally important that we get to speak to you as soon as possible, so please do the right thing and let us know where you are. 

In a statement, the women’s family has said they are “devastated” over the loss of their loved ones. 

“We would like to give thanks for all the love and support we have received. We kindly request that our privacy is respected at this difficult time,” the statement said. 

Anyone who sees Tarin has been asked not to approach him, but to ring 999 immediately. 

As West Midlands has had previous contact with the victim’s family, it said it has referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
