Police have launched an investigation after a man was “brutally” attacked following a collision in Walsall.

Officers were called to Victoria Road shortly after 8pm yesterday (Tuesday, November 21) to reports that a man was being attacked by a group of masked men.

The 32-year-old was taken to hospital with serious injuries including stab wounds and his condition is being described as critical.

DI Kat Sibley, from the Major Crime Team, said: “We are in the early stages of our investigation and continue to work to understand the circumstances that led to yesterday’s attack.

“We will be trawling CCTV and making enquiries to establish what’s happened.

"The man remains in hospital after this brutal and sustained attack and we are appealing to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed what happened to come forward."

It is believed the suspects left in a vehicle with the road being temporarily closed as forensic specialists examine the scene.
