When they arrived they found a man in his thirties who'd suffered a serious head injury which has left him in a critical condition in hospital.
A second man in his thirties had also been attacked and was taken to hospital but he's now been discharged following treatment.
Four men aged 17, 18, 19 and 20 were detained after the attack and have all been arrested on suspicion of assault.
DC Pete Miller from Force CID in Smethwick is investigating the attack which the police were alerted to at 00.50am.
