Man stabbed on his way home from celebrating New Year’s Eve in Selly Oak.

PC Gareth Johnson is appealing for witnesses after a man was stabbed on his way home from celebrating New Year’s Eve in Selly Oak.

The man, aged 27, stepped out of a taxi in Bristol Road, at around 3.30AM on New Years Day, to use a cash machine outside Seoul Plaza (pictured) when he was attacked.

He was taken to hospital by the taxi driver and underwent emergency surgery; he remains in hospital in a stable condition but is expected to make a full recovery.

A man, aged 18, from the local area has been charged with grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife and has been remanded in prison ahead of a court appearance on Friday 3rd February.

But detectives still want to hear from witnesses and are appealing for anyone who saw what happened, or were in the area at the time, to get in touch.

PC Johnson, who is from the Complex Investigation Team at Bournville Lane police station, said: “We believed there were a number of people in the street at the time who may have witnessed what happened. I am appealing for those people to come forward and talk to us if they haven’t already done so.”

If you were in the area and witnessed anything you believe may be of interest to the on-going enquiry, please get in contact by emailing gareth.johnson@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk or calling 101 ext. 822 3065 or 822 3063
