Mill Road violent assault: two men appear in court

Untitled 8

Mill Road is a generally quiet part of Brownhills and this incident is wholly exceptional. Imagery from Bing! Maps.

Readers may well be aware from social media and local gossip that a man was seriously attacked in a house in Mill Road, Brownhills in the early hours of last Saturday morning (26th July 2014).

I asked West Midlands Police over the weekend if they could clarify the situation for the benefit of readers, and to help quell some of the more extreme rumours circulating. Joanne Hunt in the press unit was good to her word and today provided the following statement, for which I thank her:

Two men were due to appear before Walsall Magistrates Court today (Mon 28 July) charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

The men, a 28-year-old man from Brownhills and a 30-year-old man from Cannock, were arrested in the early hours of Saturday 26th July after a 33-year-old man was attacked at a house in Mill Road, Brownhills at around 04:45hrs.

The injured man suffered facial and body fractures after being hit with an implement and was taken to hospital for treatment.

This is a despicable attack. Please, if you know anything about the people who did this please call the police on 101, or Contact them online. If you prefer, you can also call Crimestoppers in confidence.

Commets are disabled on this post and I would ask that readers think carefully before commenting on social media, as legal proceedings are ongoing.
