Investigation launched after man is stabbed at Birmingham fish and chip shop

November 7, 2014, 2:43 pm

Detectives have launched an investigation after a man was stabbed while working at a fish and chip shop in Birmingham yesterday (6 November).

The 51-year-old man was working at Simply Fish and Chips in Hagley Road West, Quinton when another man approached the shop and smashed the front window.

The shop worker tried to stop the man who then assaulted him and stabbed him several times. The attack happened at around 3.20pm.

Police and paramedics attended and the man was rushed to hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

The suspect is described as mixed race and was wearing a grey hooded top, grey tracksuitĀ bottoms and a black beanie hat. He ran off along Hagley Road West towards the city.

Detective Inspector Wendy Bailey, from Force CID, said: “We are in the early stages of this investigation but it appears the attack was completely unprovoked. We are currently examining CCTV footage from the scene and surrounding area which remains taped off this morning.

“The man has suffered very serious injuries and he remains in critical care at hospital. We need to hear from anyone who was in the area yesterday and saw who was responsible.

“Someone out there knows who he is and we would urge anyone with any information that could help us to come forward as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should contact DI Bailey as soon as possible on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 11.
