Teens charged with attempted murder over Solihull knife attack
We’ve charged two teenagers with attempted murder over a fight in which a boy was stabbed in the back.
Our officers were called to Chapelhouse Road, Solihull, at 2.40pm on Sunday (26 April) following reports of a nearby disorder.
A 16-year-old boy was found with a serious knife wound to the back; he remains in hospital in a stable condition.
One man was arrested at the scene while another was detained later at his home address.
Last night we charged Tobias Hollingsworth (18) from Kinghurst Way and 19-year-old Connor Sheedy from Schofield Road – both in Kingshurst – with attempted murder and grievous bodily harm.
They are due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court today.
A 14-year-old boy, from Kingshurst, was also arrested in connection with the violence; he has been bailed to return for more questioning next month.
