Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a young footballer was stabbed to death on the dance floor of a nightclub on Boxing Day.

Cody Fisher, 23, from Redditch, was fatally attacked while enjoying an evening out with friends at Crane in Digbeth, Birmingham.

Police said today that a 22-year-old was held at an address in the city center and a 21-year-old man was arrested in London.The semi-pro footballer’s girlfriend said last night that he ‘didn’t deserve this’. Jess Chatwin tweeted: “I’m so sorry this happened to you my baby please come home.” I love you forever, Cody Fisher.


A family relative at Fisher’s home in Studley, Warwickshire, told MailOnline: ‘As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for the family. We are devastated and trying to make sense of it.

‘Cody was a wonderful boy and the family had a wonderful Christmas. This is all really heartbreaking.

West Midlands Police officers were called to the Crane nightclub just before 11:45pm. after reports of the stabbing. But despite efforts to save Mr. Fisher, he died about 30 minutes later.

Revelers at the nightclub criticized security searches at the event and recalled a ‘moody’ atmosphere inside the venue, where popular techno DJ Marco Carola was playing.

Birmingham’s Sydnee Power described “groups of lads” who were “looking to cause trouble”.

The 23-year-old said: “As soon as me and my friends walked in, we had a really weird vibe and the atmosphere was not good.”

“There were just groups of guys everywhere, most of them looking grumpy. Many of them were definitely looking to cause trouble, they clearly weren’t there to enjoy the music.


An 18-year-old man from Wolverhampton, who did not want to be named, said the incident was a “disaster waiting to happen” because security searches were poor and “anyone could have brought something.”

He said of the entrance: ‘Me and the friend I was with, not once were we asked to empty our pockets even though mine were full. He was wearing cargo pants with full pockets.

“They didn’t even touch me while they searched me, they just followed the contour of my body with their hands and then they touched me to tell me to come in.

“Obviously you want everyone to have fun and have fun [but] when we walked in I said to my friend, ‘That’s the worst search I’ve ever seen.'” Anyone could have brought anything.

Detectives are viewing security cameras at the nightclub, which was hosting an event with Italian DJ Carola and British artists Steve Lawler and Mason Maynard.
