The three 16 year olds – who cannot be named for legal reasons – will appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court this morning (Friday 15th September) on charges of wounding.
West Midlands Police and Ambulance services were called just after 11am when a 18 year old lad entered nearby JobCentre Plus at the junction with Bristol Road South looking for help.

A 16 year old boy remains in a stable condition in hospital after receiving stab wounds to his buttock and leg in the incident.
