Police have arrested three teenagers after a schoolboy was stabbed at an Erdington school.
Officers were called to City of Birmingham School, Fentham Road, just after 1.30pm on Thursday 10 November following reports that a group of people had entered the school and had stabbed a 15-year-old boy.
The teenager was treated by the ambulance service and taken to hospital with serious injuries where he remains in a stable condition.
Two teenage boys aged 16 and 17 were arrested a short time later on suspicion of attempted murder and are currently helping police with their enquiries.
An investigation has been launched and searches are currently on-going to apprehend the other suspects.
Superintendent Mark Payne, from the force’s CID, said: "This is a fast paced investigation and we are still conducting enquiries to establish the circumstances around today’s incident.
"We are working closely with the school and if anyone has any information then I am urging them to speak to police or to call us as a matter of urgency."
Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101.
