Police investigating the death of a man at a house party have appealed for help to find a teenager.

Detectives want to speak to 17-year-old Trene Colcozy-Rogers in connection with the death of a 26-year-old man who was found stabbed at a house in Toxteth, Liverpool, on Friday morning.

Emergency services were called to the address on Oakham Street, where police believe there had been a party, at 6.15am and discovered the man, who later died as a result of his injuries.

Merseyside Police appealed for anyone who knows Trene, from Wavertree, Liverpool, to contact the force, but warned them to avoid approaching him.

Detective Inspector Jennie Beck said: “We are still in the very early stages of an investigation and are working to establish the full circumstances of the incident.

“We are speaking with a number of people who we believe were at the house at the time of the incident, in attendance at a party.

“At this time the motive for the attack is unknown and we are keeping an open mind.

“I understand this incident will cause much shock and concern for the local community but I want to reassure you, we are working hard to find the person(s) responsible for the tragic death of this young man.

“We’d like to remind the public that should you recognise Trene or know where he is, please let us know as we believe he could have crucial information to help us with our investigations.

“Please avoid approaching him and get in touch with us as a matter of urgency.”

Trene is described as a black male, around 5ft 9in, of medium build, with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
