Appeal to trace Solihull attack suspects 

Detectives investigating an attack on a man in Solihull have released images of suspects we want to trace.

A 44-year-old man was stabbed multiple times - and beaten with golf clubs - after being confronted by a group of men in Sandra Croft, Smiths Wood. 

David Molloy, aged 54, is wanted for questioning in connection with the attack at a block of flats on 30 October last year.

Furthermore, we also need to identify and speak to these men about what happened that night. 

Can you help us trace these men?

A 51-year-old man was previously charged with attempted murder and was remanded into custody.

The victim spent a couple of weeks in hospital and is continuing to physically and psychologically recover from his ordeal.

DC Keith Clarkson, from force CID, said: "This was a nasty attack and it’s just fortunate the victim wasn’t even more severely injured.

"Despite extensive enquiries we still to need to trace and identify those we believe were involved. I’d urge anyone who knows them to contact us."

Anyone with information is asked to contact us via Live Chat, or by calling 101, and quote 20SH/266079R/20.
