West Midlands Police are investigating after three lads were set upon by a larger group, who attacked them on a metal walking stick, on Sunday afternoon (9th April).

Police were called to a report of an assault on Holly Hill Road in Frankley, close to Lysander Road, at around 5pm.

Police believe that the trio – who were all aged around 14 and were in the area to meet with friends – were approached by a larger group of around 8 lads. After engaging them in conversation, the larger group attacked the three boys with a metal walking stick belonging to one of the victims.

West Midlands Ambulance Service attended and two of the teens were taken to hospital: one for a leg injury and the other with a head injury. The third was treated for back, shoulder and neck injuries at the scene before being discharged.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has any information, is asked to call West Midlands Police on 101 quoting reference 20BW/73288E/17
