Police body-cam footage shows the moment a killer thug who stabbed a 20-year-old man to death was arrested at work at JD Sports after being shopped by his manager.

Ridhwaan Farouk, 19, and his older brother Mohammed, 21, murdered Amin Talea after lying in wait for him to leave his home at 9pm on October 1 last year.

A court heard Amin was stabbed on his doorstep after being ambushed in Longfellow Road, King’s Norton, during the motiveless attack.

He collapsed in nearby Middleton Hall Road where two passers-by called an ambulance but he died in hospital several hours later.

The following day, Ridhwaan asked his manager at JD Sports to drive past Middleton Hall Road as she was giving him a lift to work.

She had been made aware by social media that there had been an incident the previous evening.

Ridhwaan confessed he and Mohammed had been involved and it had been his "brother’s beef" but he looked "shocked" when she told him the victim had died.

The court heard he responded by saying ‘f**k’ and also commented he was "going to go down for this" and felt sick.

His manager told a colleague about the conversation who phoned the police and Ridhwaan was arrested at his workplace in Selly Oak.

Body-cam footage shows officers arriving to arrest Ridhwaan in his uniform as he worked at the front of the store surrounded by sportswear and trainers.

Mobile phone analysis later placed both men at the scene and Mohammed Farouk was arrested a few days after the killing.

Ridhwaan, of Northfield, and Mohammed, of Bartley Green, Birmingham, denied murder and went on trial.

They were both found guilty at Birmingham Crown Court today (Wednesday, April 27) and will be jailed for life when they are sentenced on Friday (April 29).

What has West Midlands Police said about the case?

Detective Inspector Ade George, of West Midlands Police, said after the case: “We don’t know which of the brothers stabbed Mr Talea, or why, but sadly this is another example of the devastating impact that knife crime has on families and communities.

“Our thoughts remain with Mr Talea’s family today.”

What has Amin’s family said about the verdicts?

Amin’s family said in a statement following the verdicts: "I want to thank West Midlands Police for all of their hard work and effort in this investigation.

“They managed to bring justice for my son who I will forever love and remember and have been nothing but caring and helpful since the first day.

"I would also like to thank the Court for their determination to bring my family peace.

"I hope justice will be served for my beautiful son. I know he will be at peace after this. I pray that nothing like this happens to anyone else."
