A MAN was stabbed at the Lyttelton Arms pub in Hagley on Thursday night.

Police were called to the pub shortly after 9.30pm after reports of a fight involving a large group of people.

One person, a 36-year-old man, was stabbed during the incident and was taken to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital with serious injuries.  He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The incident is being treated as attempted murder and enquiries are on-going.

A police cordon was in place at the pub and remained in place throughout yesterday.

North Worcestershire Patrol Chief Insp Jake Wright, said: “I know this incident has caused a lot of concern locally and I’d like to reassure the community that we’re taking the incident incredibly seriously and are doing all we can to find those responsible.

“We’ve launched an investigation and as part of that I’d urge anyone with any information about the incident to come forward.

“If you were in pub at the time and saw, or even were part of, the fight then please get in touch as you could have vital information.

“We’d also like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen anything suspicious.  Anyone with dash-cam footage or video doorbell footage which may show the group of men involved is also asked to get in touch.”
