Police are still hunting for those responsible for stabbing a 14-year-old boy in Coventry.

The teenager was attacked in Wexford Road, Wood End, on Tuesday, February 2, after three people had jumped from a car and approached him.

The victim was taken to hospital at around 9.30pm, but thankfully his injuries did not turn out to be serious.

CoventryLive contacted West Midlands Police for an update on the investigation a week on and the force said that no arrests had been made so far and enquiries are ongoing.

Police previously described the incident as an “unprovoked attack” which saw the youngster approached by three people who had jumped out of a car.

An appeal has gone out for anyone witnessed the attack to come forward, while CCTV from the area is also being examined.

Detective Inspector Kerrie Martin, from West Midlands Police CID, said: “A boy was stabbed in the street and at this stage it appears to be an unprovoked attack.

“We know a car fled the scene soon afterwards.

“There are conflicting accounts of what type of car this was and we need anyone who can help us establish this, and knows who was responsible, to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can contact the force on 101 or via its Live Chat, quoting 20CV/31337M/21. Details can also be given anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
