Three males stabbed at Birmingham nightclub – yards from Sajid Javid knife crime go to

POLICE have launched an investigation following a triple stabbing at a club in Birmingham.

Officers were called to reports of a disorder at around 2:20am this morning at Medleys club on Bristol Road South.

Three men thought to be in their 20s were taken to hospital for treatment to stab injuries, none of which are thought to be life-threatening.

Jenny Birch from force CID said: “We are working hard to establish the circumstances of what took place during the early hours of this morning.

“I need anyone who has any information about what happened to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

“This is a shocking incident where weapons were sadly used again causing injuries to three people, we need to determine what happened and who is responsible.

“Officers are addressing the rising surge in violence and knife crime. We continue our extra patrols and are still utilising our extensive powers to search people without the need to suspect they are carrying weapons.

“We are committed to tackling the rise in violence in the city and will robustly deal with those intent on causing harm within our communities.”

The stabbings took place in the same area where home secretary Sajid Javid had a fact finding tour on knife crime and locals told him of their concern.

It’s the latest knife attack in Birmingham after three teenagers were fatally stabbed in 12 days in the city last month.

Mr Javid has called for knife crime to be treated “like a disease” after meeting police chiefs from seven forces most affected by violent crime.

It comes after two 17-year-olds were killed in separate stabbings in London and Greater Manchester last weekend.

Jodie Chesney was killed in an east London park while Yousef Ghaleb Makki was knifed in the affluent village of Hale Barns, South Manchester.
