A man has been charged with murder after alleged stabbing at Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley train station identified.
Brisbane, Australia (SN) | The man accused of stabbing a 24-year-old man near the Fortitude Valley train station on Monday morning has been identified as 20-year-old Seyram Kwami Djentuh.
Mr Djentuh was charged with the murder of Lauie Michael Tagaloa yesterday and did not appear in the Brisbane Arrest Court this morning when his matter was heard.
The 20-year-old student was remanded in custody and will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on August 8.
His lawyer, Joe Wicking, made no comment outside court.Police allege an altercation broke out between two groups of men in Brunswick Street Mall around 4am on Monday and continued inside a shopping complex nearby, where Mr Djentuh allegedly stabbed Mr Tagaloa.
Regional Duty Officer Inspector Sean Cryer said police saw the incident take place on CCTV footage and emergency services were dispatched shortly after.
“On closer examination, they saw a male person lying on the ground and persons nearby had blood on them,” he said.
Preliminary first aid and CPR were administered to Mr Tagaloa but he was later declared dead at the scene.
Police located Seyram Djentuh and two other men, aged 21 and 20, on platform four of the Fortitude Valley station a short time later and arrested the trio.
The two other men were released without charge after assisting police.
Mobile footage will form a crucial part of the investigation into the alleged murder of a 24-year-old Queensland man after he was fatally stabbed at a Brisbane train station yesterday morning.
The footage captures Lauie Tagaloa’s final moments as a brawl between two groups of men allegedly erupted in Fortitude Valley’s Valley Metro shopping complex and train station around 4am, July 11.
