A teenager has been arrested after three people – including two children – were stabbed in what’s believed to be a domestic incident at a Birmingham home.
Police were called to an address in Little Green Lane, Small Heath, at 7.20am this morning by a resident who reported hearing screams.
Officers arrived at the scene within a matter of minutes and arrested a 17-year-old in the street and recovered a knife nearby; he has been taken to hospital having suffered a minor cut to his hand.
A woman in her 40s and a teenage girl – believed to be aged 16 – were found inside a house with knife injuries whilst a younger girl, thought to be 10, was found on the pavement with stab injuries.
A baby was discovered unharmed inside the address and is currently being cared for by family members.
West Midlands Police Force Incident Manager, Chief Inspector Jack Hadley, said: “All three casualties have suffered multiple knife wounds but the seriousness of their injuries is unclear at this stage.
“This appears to be a contained, domestic incident: one man was arrested outside the address and we are not actively seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.”
Police have cordoned off Little Green Lane to allow forensic scene examiners to scour the location and clear space for the air ambulance to land.
Wyndcliffe Primary school – adjacent to the house in Little Green Lane – has been closed for the day.
