Two Arrested after Stabbing of 15 Year Old Schoolboy
A 15 year old schoolboy has been left in a critical, but stable, condition after he was stabbed at his school.
The teenager was outside City of Birmingham School when two young males chased him back inside. The attack took place just after 1.30pm on Thursday 10 November.
Police have confirmed that two boys, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Superintendent Mark Payne said the investigation so far has been ‘fast paced’:
“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.”
It has not yet been confirmed if the two teenagers arrested also attend City of Birmingham School, which is the main pupil referral unit for Birmingham that, specialising in helping children with a range of behavioural issues.
