Man arrested following serious stabbing in Sandwell
We’ve arrested a man on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing in Wednesbury this afternoon (8 June).
We were alerted just before 12.15pm to the incident in Upper High Street during which a 34-year-old man suffered a stab injury to his neck.
He’s been taken to hospital in a critical condition.
It’s believed the offender made off in a van and around two hours later a man surrendered to one of our police stations.
A man aged 38 has now been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in police custody.
Detective Inspector Jackie Nicholson, said: “This is a shocking incident in which a man has been attacked in the street in broad daylight.
“Our enquiries are at an early stage but we’ve already seized CCTV and spoken to some key witnesses; at this stage we believe this to be a targeted attack.
“We’re still appealing for witnesses and would ask anyone who saw what happened to please get in touch as they would have important information.”
