West Midlands Police are investigating after a teenager was injured in an incident in Northfield yesterday afternoon (30th July).  

Police were called to Chatham Road just after 5pm to reports that a teenager was assaulted.

A police spokeswoman said: “The 15-year-old was taken to hospital with suspected stab wounds to his shoulder and lower back. His injuries are serious but not life threatening.”

A section of the road was cordoned off while police carried out a forensic examination.

Anyone with any information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

  1. ONCE AGAIN ANOTHER NORTHFIELD STABBING AND THE POLICE SAY AND DO NOTHING TOO WIPE OUT THIS CRIME WHICH IS GETTING TO BE NORMAL BEHAVIOUR LATLEY IN NORTHFIELD BIGGEST MISTAKE WAS PUTTING BOURNEVILLE COLLEGE IN LONGBRIDGE NOTHING BUT GANG RELATED EVER SINCE IF YOU GO TOO WEST BROM YOU ALWAYS SEE POLICE PATROLLING THE AREA SO WHY NOT NORTHFIELD INSTEAD OF SWANING AROUND IN PILICE CARS GET THEM OUT THEIR ON FOOT THEY SAY THEIR IS NOT ENOUGH POLICE TO GO ON FOOT BUT YOU ALWAYS SEE 2 OR 3 IN A PATOLL CAR TIME TOO TAKE ACTION AND GET NORTHFIELD SOME POSITIVE MARKS INSTEAD OF NEGATIVE

  2. Mate u complain about the police not doing
    Enough but they always patrol chatham road, the issue is, the new generation have no regard for peoples lives, it was a quick in an out job, so how can the police be responsible, they were on the scene within 5 mins of the incident, dont get me wrong im not a fanfof the police myself, but they can only do so much

  3. Yet again people have their fact wrong this was not teenagers the man in hospital now is infact a 24 year old bloke and the people believed to have done this were in their 40s this has nothing to do with the younger generation which is what they always seem to say it is to make it seem normal but this was grown men not teenagers or kids! This story should not have been publicised without having its facts

  4. You have a problem with lack of Police on the street and on foot. Whine to the Government who are in the process of wrecking the Force. It will only get worse. That is all. Out

  5. I agree on both sides yeah police say there stretched but why have 3 or 4 in one car? Regardless of that simple easier way to deal with the northfield problem stop the gangs gathering up there in the first place police should warn them to move on or hit them with fines and asbos or even just hit them lol
