Yobs carried machetes

Detectives investigating a disorder in Birmingham are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

It happened on Cherrywood Road at around 3pm on Saturday (23 October).

Around seven young men were seen with machetes and it’s reported one person had a handgun. Witnesses say a gunshot was heard.

Officers attended but the men had left and no weapons were found. No injuries have been reported to us.

CCTV footage is now being reviewed.

A statement from West Midlands Police says: “We know there were at least three groups of men in the area at the time. All were wearing hooded tops and face masks.

“We’d ask anyone who saw anything or has any dashcam footage to get in touch as soon as possible.

“Like you, we do not want or expect to see violence like this on our streets, especially in broad daylight.

“If you have information or footage which can assist us, please contact us via Live Chat on our website or call 101 quoting 20/182576/21.”
