Police officers will be on the scene of a stabbing which left a man in a critical condition for most of the morning, detectives have confirmed.
Part of Slade Road in Erdington has been closed in both directions while investigations are carried out into who attacked the 24-year-old.
Ch Insp Neil Hobson said officers were speaking to witnesses as well as trawling through CCTV footage from the area.
A young man is fighting for his life in hospital, so if anyone saw anything and has not yet spoken to us, I would urge them to come forward as soon as possible.
Slade Road is likely to remain closed for much of this morning as it’s vital we fully examine the crime scene during daylight hours.
