Detectives have launched an investigation after a schoolboy was hurt in a stabbing in Kings Norton this morning (Monday 23 May).

The 16-year-old was attacked near to a bus stop on Monyhull Hall Road, Kings Norton at around 8.30am. He made his way to a nearby school where he collapsed and an ambulance was called.

He is currently being treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

A 16-year-old boy later handed himself in to police and he is being questioned tonight in connection with the assault.

Officers cordoned off an area of Monyhull Hall Road for a short time. Anyone who was in the area is urged to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Jackie Morrin, said: “We are treating this as an isolated incident and are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with what happened.”

“It was a busy time of day with people on the working commute or school run and we do believe there are a number of people who may have seen the assault.”

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
