Man Held As Woman And Teenagers Stabbed

A man has been arrested after a woman and two teenage girls were stabbed at a house in Birmingham in a suspected domestic incident.

Police were called to Little Green Lane, Small Heath, at 7.20am by a resident who reported hearing screams from the home.

An injured man was arrested in the street and a knife was found nearby.

The woman, in her 40s, and a 16-year-old girl were found inside the house with multiple knife injuries.

Another girl, thought to be 13, was found outside on the pavement. She had also suffered multiple knife injuries.

An unharmed baby was found inside the home and is currently being cared for by family members.

The arrested man has been taken to hospital with a minor cut to his hand.

Speaking about the victims, West Midlands Police Chief Inspector Jack Hadley said: "The seriousness of their injuries is unclear at this stage.

"This appears to be a contained, domestic incident: one man was arrested outside the address and we are not actively seeking anyone else in connection with the incident."

Wyndcliffe Primary school - adjacent to the house in Little Green Lane - has been closed for the day as police have cordoned off the area to allow forensic examiners to scour the location.
