Police are continuing to appeal for information after a man was critically injured in Wolverhampton last month.

It happened near McDonald’s on Bilston High Street on 6 February at around 7pm after disorder broke out. The incident then moved onto a footbridge by Stonefield Walk, over the Black Country Route, where it's believed the 37-year-old was attacked.
He suffered a stab wound to his groin and was treated in a critical care unit for weeks before being moved to a rehabilitation ward. He’s still very poorly and it’s unlikely he’ll ever fully recover from his injuries.
Three teenagers were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder later that evening. Our investigation continues and bail conditions have been extended against one of the suspects. 
Police know there were a number of people present at the time. They've spoken to many, but still need to speak to the others. Detective Inspector Craig Newey, from Force CID, said:

“This was a really nasty attack which left the man fighting for his life. He’s making progress but the physical, mental and emotional distress for him is significant. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones at this time.
“Our investigation is still very much ongoing as we need to understand why this happened and who was responsible. We need you to talk to us. If you are frightened to do so, you can talk to Crimestoppers – tell them what you know, not who you are.
“Knife crime on our streets is unacceptable with devastating consequences for victims and offenders.”
You can talk to the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or message officers using Live Chat through the West Midlands Police website.
