Arthur was violently attacked at his home in Endwood Drive, Sutton Coldfield, on the evening of 21 November 2017, before he had valuable jewellery stolen. Arthur sadly passed away on 12 December.
Following an extensive investigation, we are keen to talk to Jimmy Michael Connors, 28, and Tom Joseph Ward, 17, (both pictured) about their whereabouts on the day of the incident.
Connors is described as 5ft 5ins, average build with an Irish accent.
Ward, who resides in Stoke-on-Trent occasionally, is described as 5ft 8ins, average build with an Irish accent.
Detective Inspector Dan Ison, the senior investigating officer, said: “Both men have links throughout the country and are known to frequent the London, Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Yorkshire areas. It is imperative they are caught as soon as possible and help from the public is needed to track them down.”
Both men are considered violent, so please do not approach them.
