25th November 2021

A man has been charged with murder following a stabbing in the Butetown area of Cardiff.

Jordan Cody-Foster was attacked on Hansen Street at just after 9am on Tuesday morning (23rd November).

The 31 year-old died from his injuries, despite being treated by paramedics and staff from a nearby homeless centre.

Steven White (44), from Splott, was due to appear before Cardiff magistrates on Thursday.

The family of Mr Cody-Foster have appealed for calm from his friends.

In a statement on Wednesday night, they said ''he was deeply loved by everyone''.

The family added: ''We are grieved and saddened by the sudden, brutal murder of our son, nephew, cousin, brother and father.''

''The early years of Jordan's life were filled with love and hope, and he enjoyed many sporting activities.''

''We also pray for the peace of God to keep and comfort us and Jordan's friends at this very difficult time. We also ask for calm from those who knew him in respect of his memory and do not take any action into your own hands.''
