Police reveal name of man allegedly murdered by 14yo in Northland

Police have named the victim of a man allegedly stabbed to death on Thursday night by a 14-year-old.

He was Bram Willems, a 22-year-old from Okaihau.

Willems was stabbed outside a bar on Opua Paihia Main Rd in the Northland town late on Thursday night.

A 14-year-old has been charged with his murder.

"The investigation into Mr Willems' death continues, and we are reiterating our appeal for any information on both an incident in Kawakawa and sightings of a vehicle," said Det Snr Sgt Geoff McCarthy.

"Anyone who saw an altercation outside the Work and Income building on Kawakawa's main street around 10pm on Thursday is asked to contact police."

Kawakawa is just to the south of Opua.

McCarthy also asked for anyone who has footage or photographs of the incident to upload them to crew.nzpolice.org.

"We're also looking for sightings of a silver Toyota Altezza, registration MQE620, in the Kawakawa/Opua/Kerikeri areas late on Thursday night and into Friday," he added.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 105.

The teenager charged with Willems' murder will appear in court in early February.
