Two arrested following stabbing in Coventry city centre

We were called to reports of disorder in The Burges, Coventry at 1am this morning (26 February).

On arrival we found that a 40-year-old man had been stabbed and he was taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing and he’s been discharged to recover at home.

A 20-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of assault and will be questioned in due course.

Our investigation is currently ongoing with officers reviewing CCTV and making enquiries in the local area.

Detective Sergeant Aman Hundal, from force CID, said: “We understand that the local community and people living in Coventry are very worried and concerned, especially as this incident took place just a few hours after a 29-year-old man was stabbed on New Union Street.

“I’d like to reassure them that we’re doing all we can to find those responsible, and three people are already in police custody in connection with the two incidents.

“The attacks are being treated as isolated incidents, and although there is no threat to the wider public our neighbourhood officers are out conducting reassurance patrols and speaking to people in the local area to offer advice and support.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact us via live chat on our website. To remain 100% anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Please quote crime number 20CV/ 55270T/21.
