A fourth man has now been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Abdullah Balouchi, which occurred on Peel Street on Wednesday 7 October. 

Abdul Al-Amudi (32) of Cambridge Street, Hull has been charged with murder and is due to appear in Hull Magistrates Court today, Wednesday 14 October.

Yesterday, the three other men charged were remanded into custody following their first court appearance. 

North Bank Commander, Chief Superintendent Darren Downs, said: “Following the news of charges being brought against four men for the murder of Abdullah Balouchi, I would like to reassure the public that we are still maintaining a highly visible presence in the Peel Street and surrounding areas.

“Officers from our Neighbourhood team continue to patrol the area to deter any further offences taking place, and are there to support and listen to any concerns raised by the community.
