Broad daylight! These people have no fear, they know that the chances of being caught are slim and a 'real' conviction even slimmer. :fuming:

I'm not convinced it happened the way we've been told it happened? :roll:

Maybe not Dutchman, but it was all over F/B as it 'unfolded'.

There has also been a spate of burglaries around the Willenhall and Binley areas, which may (or may not) be connected.

Man charged after 18-year-old stabbed in back twice and robbed

Detectives have charged a man following a robbery where an 18-year-old woman was stabbed in the back twice.

Police say three men are understood to have approached the victim in St James Lane, Willenhall, at just after 2.30pm on August 6 and took cash and a mobile phone.

Despite sustaining two stab wounds to her back, the teenager was not seriously injured.

Daniel Callum, 20, of Pinley Fields, Stoke Aldermoor, has since been charged with robbery.

He has been remanded in custody to appear before Warwick Crown Court on September 12.

Two other 19-year-old men have been bailed while enquiries continue.
