Two men were arrested after being found with stab injuries in Coventry on Friday night (October 23).

Officers found the two men with stab wounds in Woodway Lane, in Woodway Park, after being called to the street at around 6.37pm.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of assault as police try to establish how they came to receive the injuries.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 6.37pm to Woodway Park and then shortly before 7pm to nearby Ansty Road where one man was treated on scene before he was taken to hospital.

His injuries were serious but not thought to be life-threatening.

West Midlands Police say they want to speak with anyone who has information.
