Two men have been charged with the murder of a man who died after sustaining a knife wound in Brighton.

Police said Daryl Richardson, 26, of Cumberland Road, Portsmouth, and Bobby Smith, 21, of no fixed address, were charged with the murder of Muhammed Lamin Jassey, 26, of Brighton.

Mr Jassey died in hospital on April 5 following an incident in Whitehawk Road, just south of the junction with Findon Road.

Both men will appear via video link at Brighton Magistrates’ Court today (Friday, 24).

Two other men, aged 25 and 41, who were arrested on suspicion of murder, are on police bail until May 4, according to officers.

On April 6, the 21-year-old was released under investigation, and officers said the 38-year-old will face no further police action.

“The victim’s family are being kept informed of the progress of the police investigation and are being supported by our family liaison officers.

“We continue to actively pursue lines of enquiry and would urge anyone with information to come forward.

“In particular we would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident and has any dash cam or other video footage.”
