Four teenage boys charged after a pensioner was hit by stone in taxi.

Four teenage boys have been charged after an elderly woman was injured by a stone thrown through a taxi window in Edgbaston.

On-board footage which showing the stone smash through the glass and hit the passenger in Bellevue Road, went viral after being released on Birmingham Updates (BU).

The woman, in her 70s, was taken to hospital with a fractured skull after being hit while travelling in a back seat, at around 10pm on Wednesday 25th May.

The four teenager boys, aged 16, 17 and 15, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were arrested on suspicion of wounding following an investigation by the Birmingham South partnerships team.

They will appear at Birmingham Youth Court on Wednesday 23 November charged with wounding and conspiring to destroy and to damage property.

A fifth teenager was arrested but following enquiries no further action will be taken against him.
