Fourth arrest in connection with stabbing in Tile Hill, Coventry

A COVENTRY man has been arrested in connection with a knife attack on Tile Hill.

A 33-year-old man was left with serious injuries to his arm, after he was attacked by a group wielding knives and baseball bats in Tile Hill Lane, on Monday October 7.

He was set upon shortly after leaving a restaurant around 10.30pm, police say.

Detectives said the arrest is the fourth in connection with the attack, which they are treating as attempted murder.

Armed police stopped a car on the A444 on Saturday night (October 12), taking a 19-year-old man from Canley into custody, where officers continue to question him.

A 28-year-old man and another 33-year-old man have already been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The 33-year-old was recalled to prison, with the 28-year-old released on bail until a hearing in November.

A 24-year-old woman was released after she was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Coventry police ask anyone with information to call 101 at any time.
