Teen Stabbed In The Black Country
A 16-year-old boy has been stabbed in an unprovoked attack in the Black Country.
The boy - who has autism - was walking home just after midnight last Wednesday when a group of men in a car approached him asking if he wanted drugs.
When he said no the men, all described as of Asian appearance, got out of the car and chased him.
He fell over and was assaulted, punched and kicked several times before being stabbed twice in the back.
Detective Constable Cal Sanders, from West Bromwich police station, said: “This is a shocking and unprovoked assault on a vulnerable boy and we are providing support to him and his family.
“One of the stab wounds was to the lower centre of his back which if deeper could have severed his spine resulting in devastating consequences.
“I’m looking for anyone who witnessed this incident, recognises the vehicle or has any information to contact police at the earliest possible opportunity.
“We’re taking this extremely seriously and patrols in the area have been increased as a result of the assault."
