Yesterday evening, Wednesday 12th July 2017, there was a serious incident in Walsall Wood High Street, believed to have taken place outside the Boatman’s Rest pub which saw a heavy emergency services response, including an armed police unit and the West Midlands Police helicopter.
Details are sketchy at the moment, but I have lodged enquiries in with local police and as soon as I get and answer, I’ll share information here on the blog.
At the moment, it appears there was some kind of fight outside the pub, during which a man sustained a serious head injury from a bladed weapon.
The altercation is believed to have been related to one earlier in the day at Oak Road, Walsall Wood, and previous incidents over the weekend at Pelsall. This is unconfirmed, but I have good reason to believe this to be the case.
I realise information is scant at the moment, and the rumour mill is in overdrive but I would ask that readers are sensitive and considerate with discussion and speculation on social media.
More will be posted here as I have it.
