Birmingham man charged over domestic stabbing
We’ve charged a man over a domestic stabbing that’s left a woman seriously ill in hospital.
Matthew Elwell is accused of attacking the victim – a 33-year-old woman who’s known to him – at an address in Farndon Road, Birmingham, on Wednesday afternoon (14 April).
She remains in hospital with potentially life-changing injuries having suffered a stab wound to her back.
We arrested Elwell in Stechford shortly after the 1pm attack and last night charged him with attempted murder.
The 24-year-old, from Sharps Close in Birmingham, is due to appear at the city’s magistrates court today.
