Teenager stabbed following argument on a bus

December 5, 2012, 5:12 pm

Police have launched an investigation after a teenager was stabbed in the stomach yesterday afternoon in Erdington.

A 14-year-old boy was stabbed just before 4pm on Wood End Lane, he was rushed to hospital and received treatment for the wound. His condition is described as stable and he is expected to make a full recovery.

It is believed that the stabbing occurred following an argument between three youths on a bus.

Police are now appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw the argument before to come forward.

No arrests have been made at this time, but detectives are pursuing several lines of enquiry.

Inspector Michaela Kerr, from the major investigation team in Birmingham, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the argument before the stabbing took place to come forward.

“We are led to believe that after the incident the offender may have got onto a bus to escape.

“This happened at a very busy time of the day as schools were closing – there must have been lots of people around and I am sure that people witnessed incident.

“We are urging you to come forward to help us piece together what happened – please call me on 101 or if you want to remain anonymous then call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
