A 14-year-old boy has been charged with murder after an alleged robbery in Stockport.
A teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with murder and numerous driving offences.
He was remanded in custody and is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court today, Wednesday 13th January 2021.
Just after 9pm on Friday 8 January 2021, Mohammed Islam, 53, from Hyde, Tameside, was delivering food when he was struck by his own car following a robbery. Mr Islam, who was also known as Nowab Miah, owned the Marple Spice restaurant in Marple.
He was taken to hospital but sadly died of his injuries on Sunday 10th January.
Anyone with information is asked to get in touch with police.
Detective Chief Inspector Liam Boden, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said:
“As our investigation continues I would like to pay tribute to Mohammed’s family who have shown such admirable bravery and dignity this week during the most tragic of circumstances imaginable.
“They and the local community have responded stoically in the last few days and we are doing all we can to support Mohammed’s loved ones with specialist officers at this awful time.
“Our priority is to ensure they get the answers they are undoubtedly owed and we urge anyone with information or footage relating this incident to submit to our portal or to contact us via phone so we can ensure we ascertain the full details of this incident.”
