Man In Critical Condition After Black Country Stabbing

Detectives have started an investigation after a man was found with head injuries on New Road, Halesowen.

Officers were alerted to the incident by Ambulance colleagues at around 12:30am yesterday morning (Friday). The 35-year-old man was taken to hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

An investigation was launched and an area of New Road has been cordoned off whilst forensic experts examine the scene. Detective Inspector Warren Hines, from Force CID, said:

“We are in the early stages of our investigation and continue to make enquiries to establish what has happened. I am keen to speak to anyone who was in the William Shenstone Wetherspoons pub in Halesowen yesterday between about 4pm and 10pm.

“I believe that there may have been an incident in the pub prior to a group of men leaving, again if anyone saw anything I would urge them to get in touch. Finally, I’m interested to speak to anyone who was in the New Road at around 10pm and may have seen anything which left our victim with serious injuries. “

Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Inspector Warren Hines on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
