Police are investigating after a man was stabbed in a flat in Coventry in the second city stabbing since Friday. Police were called to a flat in Riley Square shortly after 10am yesterday (Saturday, June 25).
A 28-year-old man has been taken to hospital and West Midlands Police say he is expected to be discharged from hospital later today. No arrests have been made.
A police spokesman said: “We’re investigating after a 28-year-old man was stabbed in a flat in Riley Square on Saturday, 25 June. We were told about the crime at 10.21am via a call from the ambulance service.
“It is expected that the man will be discharged later today. If you can help our detectives, send them a message via Live Chat on our website west-midlands.police.uk. Please quote reference number 1192-250622.”
It comes a day after news of another stabbing in Coventry emerged. That incident led to the air ambulance landing in a grassed area in the city.
The victim was a man in his 50s. Police gave first aid until medics arrived.
Police are trying to find and arrest the attacker. A police description says they are looking for an Asian man in his 40s, who was dressed in black at the time of the incident.
In a statement about the Foleshill attack, local police said ‘knife crime must stop’. They also urged everyone in the city to ‘help’ in tackling the issue.
This could involve talking to children about the dangers of carrying a knife. Officers say it could also involve informing police about who is carrying weapons.
