A teenager has been released on bail after a 17-year-old was stabbed outside a Coventry pub. The suspect, who is also aged 17, handed himself into Coventry police station on May 3 in connection with the incident outside The Glades pub on Bank Holiday Monday night.

West Midlands Police say that the teen was then arrested on suspicion of assault. He remained in police custody the following day (May 4) for questioning.

Since then the teenager has been bailed. However, a number of conditions have been imposed, including not entering the Willenhall area.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “He’s been bailed with conditions, including not entering the Willenhall area of Coventry, as enquiries continue.”

As regards the continuing investigation, officers are still trying to trace a silver VW Golf which was driven away from the scene. Officers say that the car, which is understood to have been on cloned plates and have several people inside, is vital to their investigation.

They also still want to hear from anyone who was in the area at around 7.45pm on Monday, May 2. Anyone with information about the stabbing or the silver Golf should contact West Midlands Police via the Live Chat on its website and quote reference number 20/426234/22.

Details can also be passed on to officers via the independent charity Crimestoppers, which is free to call from a landline and confidential, on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
