Schoolboy charged over street attack


A 15-year-old boy has been charged after a serious attack outside a Birmingham mosque.

A 22-year-old man is still critically ill in hospital after the incident on St Oswald’s Road in Small Heath.

It’s understood a fight broke out between two people just before 2.30pm on Friday afternoon which led to others becoming involved in the disturbance.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Stuart Kidd, said:

“There is no change in the condition of the young man who suffered serious injuries during the attackā€¦he is still very poorly in hospital.”

A 15-year-old local lad was arrested on Sunday night and charged with Grievous Bodily Harm on Monday.

Two other men who were arrested have now been released on bail.

Police are still keen to hear from anyone with information or who may have witnessed the fight; they can contact the Force CID in Birmingham by dialling 101, or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
