A TEENAGER who suffered ‘multiple stab wounds’ in Coventry has been released from hospital – six days on.
The police confirmed with the Coventry Observer today that the 16-year-old has been discharged.
Earlier, officers had confirmed the injuries were not life-threatening.
A West Midlands Police spokesperson said last week: “Police were called to Station Street East, Coventry, to reports of a teenager being stabbed at around 7pm last night (January 3).
“A 16-year-old boy was taken to hospital to be treated for multiple stab wounds, which are not believed to be life threatening.
“Investigations are on-going to establish the circumstances around this attack.
“Anyone with information can contact us, quoting log number 2031 of 03/01 via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am to midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
It is the latest in a long line of incidents of knife crime in the city.
Several high-profile attacks have drawn national attention, including the fatal stabbings of The Specials’ Neville Staple’s grandson Fidel Glasgow and 16-year-old Jaydon James.
Knife crime has nearly doubled in Coventry over the last five years, West Midlands Police figures show.
