Police appeal after teenager stabbing in Coventry

Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was stabbed in Coventry.

Officers were called to Trinity Street in the city centre just before 6pm yesterday (2 February) following reports of a disorder which involved male youths.

Upon arrival, they discovered a 15-year-old boy had suffered stab wounds to his leg and lower torso.

He was later treated in hospital and discharged just after midnight, with injuries that are not believed to be life changing.

West Midlands Police enquiries are continuing, whilst eye-witness accounts have been taken and an extensive CCTV trawl of cameras in the city centre is underway.

A Dispersal Order has also been authorised by senior officers, giving police the power to move on any groups hanging around the area if it is believed they could be a crime or anti-social behaviour threat. This will last until tomorrow (4 February).

Additional officers have also been patrolling the city centre today for added reassurance to the public.

Anyone who saw the incident, or teenagers fleeing the scene, are urged to call police on 101 or report the information on Live Chat at WMP Online.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
