West Midlands Police are investigating a possible link between two incidents in South Birmingham on Sunday evening (8th April).
Baseball bats and hammers in Rednal
Police were initially called to Toll House Road – off Lickey Road in Rednal – at 8.45pm. A member of the public reported having seen a vehicle being attacked by a group of men with baseball bats and hammers.
Within minutes a second call came from ambulance colleagues who attended another South Birmingham location to find a man in his 30s who had suffered stab injuries. The man’s injuries are not thought to be life threatening and he remained in hospital this morning.
Police have said that the incidents may be connected.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: “Enquiries are at an early stage but it’s suspected this may be a targeted attack.”
