Man charged with attempted murder after pensioner stabbed

We’ve charged a man with attempted murder after it’s alleged he stabbed a pensioner in a random attack outside a row of shops in Birmingham on Saturday (16 Jan).

The 77-year-old victim had popped to the shops in Tynedale Road, Tyseley, at around 12.45pm when he was grabbed from behind and stabbed.

We quickly arrested a 27-year-old man and last night charged him with attempted murder and possessing a knife in public.
