Detectives investigating a violent incident at the Bullring in Birmingham yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 18 December) have released an image of a person they want to speak to.
Officers were called just after 3.30pm to reports of two people being injured near the rear entrance of Selfridges.
A 17-year-old man was taken to hospital with a hand injury and a 18-year-old man with a slash wound to his head and a broken ankle.
At this stage detectives believe it was an isolated incident.
Detective Inspector Lauren Glass said: “We’re working hard to establish the circumstances of what happened yesterday afternoon.
“The two men received nasty injuries in a busy shopping centre, a week before Christmas. There is no place for this level of violence within the city.
“I urge anyone with any information who hasn’t already contacted us to get in touch.”
There will be a continued police presence within the Bullring over the weekend to offer reassurance to shoppers and visitors to the city.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police via Live Chat at www.west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight or call 101 anytime. Quote crime number 20BW/298820C/19.
