A killer has been given three life sentences after stabbing a man to death in a random attack as he walked down a Handsworth road, leaving two other victims with life-changing injuries.

Antonio Tibere pleaded guilty to the murder of 35-year-old Krystian Debski and admitted attempting to murder a 50-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, possessing a bladed article and possessing cocaine, according to West Midlands Police.

The 25-year-old appeared at Woolwich Crown Court last Thursday (December 21) where he was jailed for life and ordered to spend a minimum of 30 years behind bars for the murder.

He was given life with a minimum of 11 years for the attempted murder of the woman, and life with a minimum of eight years and 10 months for the attempted murder of the man. These will all run concurrently with Tibere’s sentence for murder.

His two surviving victims were left with life-changing injuries following the random attacks which took place over a 10 minute period shortly after 3am on December 22, last year on the Soho Road.

Tibere, from Wattville Road, West Bromwich, carried out the three attacks and then took to social media livestreaming a Facebook Live where he said: “I will kill anyone who comes across me.”

According to West Midlands Police, officers responded “very quickly” and within 15 minutes of the first attack Tibere had been arrested by firearms officers “still carrying the knives he used”.

In a police statement, the force said, the Facebook Live was “crucial evidence” along with DNA taken from Tibere’s knife which linked him to the three victims.

“CCTV footage also proved to be vital as it captured his movements and all three attacks.”

Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from WMP Homicide Management, who headed the investigation said: “This was a series of vicious and unprovoked attacks on innocent members of the public. Tragically Mr Debski lost his life as a result of being stabbed. Two other people also suffered life changing injuries.

“The family of Mr Debski are still coming to terms with the appalling events from 22 December last year. They are finding it difficult to comprehend through the sheer randomness of the attack.

“Although this kind of random attack is rare it is yet another devastating example of the consequences of carrying knives in public places.

“My thoughts remain with the family and friends of Mr Debski and the two other victims who will always have to live with what happened on that dreadful night.”
