TWO teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after three schoolboys were stabbed in Solihull on Saturday (February 13).

The three boys presented themselves at Solihull Hospital around 6.30pm after the attack which is believed to have happened around the Hobs Meadow area near to Westcote Close shortly before.

An investigation was quickly launched after.

Two teenagers, aged 16 and 17, were arrested from their home addresses just before 7pm last night and are currently helping police with their enquiries.

A 16-year-old boy remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital and two 15-year-olds were treated for minor injuries.

Detective Sergeant Sam Price, from Solihull’s Violent Crime Team, said: “We are appealing to anyone who was in the area on Saturday evening and who may have seen something to come forward.

“It is still unclear what actually happened and we have officers trawling CCTV and conducting house to house enquiries in the area of Castle Lane and Westcote Close.”

Anyone with information should call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
