Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has confirmed that three men have been charged with murder after a teenager was stabbed to death in Withington last month.

The 17-year-old victim – who has been named as Kyle Hackland – was stabbed at around 11:30am on Southlea Road in Withington on Tuesday 22 November, and sadly passed away from his injuries shortly after he was taken to hospital.

GMP said at the time that it did not believe the incident was “a random attack”.

Shortly after making that announcement, the force confirmed that on Thursday 24 November, a teenager handed himself in to North Manchester Police Station, with a second teenager then handing himself in to Cheadle Heath Police Station later on the same day, and both being arrested shortly after.

On top of that, a third teenager was arrested at an address in Wythenshawe on suspicion of assault, possession of an offensive weapon, and affray.


After confirming that three arrests had been made in connection with the devastating incident, GMP said its Major Incident Team were conducting an “extensive and thorough investigation” to establish circumstances and find out who is responsible.

Now, the force has confirmed that on Monday, three men have been charged in connection with this incident.


They have been named as Yusef Sesay (24/11/2004) of Denton Road in Audenshaw, Lewis Ludford (05/12/2004) of no fixed abode, and a 16-year-old male – who cannot be named for legal reasons.
