Three teenagers have been charged with wounding in connection with a disorder in which a 19 year old man was stabbed in Bartley Green earlier this week.

Three 17 year old lads – from Bartley Green and Weoley Castle – appeared before Birmingham magistrates today, accused of attacking the man in Lye Avenue, Bartley Green, on Tuesday night (August 9th).

All three were charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. One also faces a separate charge of possessing an offensive weapon in public.

The 19 year old lad was treated in hospital for stab injuries but has since been discharged.

A police spokesman confirmed that a 44 year old man arrested following the incident has been released without charge after helping police with their enquiries.

West Midlands Police detectives are still appealing for witnesses and information.

If anyone was in the Lye Avenue area at around 7.45pm on Tuesday and saw what happened, or has any information that could assist enquiries, they are urged to call West Midlands Police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111
