A MAN has been se­ri­ously in­jured in a stab­bing in Coven­try. Po­lice were called to the scene in The Cop­pice, Stoke Al­der­moor, shortly be­fore 9pm on Tues­day. Part of the area out­side SI News and Off Li­cence was taped off as of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gated the scene. Wit­nesses said the man had walked 200 yards with his in­juries from The Cop­pice to the junc­tion of the Bar­ley Lea. West Mid­lands Am­bu­lance Ser­vice sent sev­eral re­sources to the scene, in­clud­ing the crit­i­cal care car from the air am­bu­lance. They treated a man who had suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries in the in­ci­dent.

A spokesman for the am­bu­lance ser­vice said: “We were called at 8.55pm to The Cop­pice. We had one am­bu­lance, one para­medic of­fi­cer and the crit­i­cal care car from the air am­bu­lance.

“We treated a man who had suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries. He was given trauma care on scene by the doc­tor, be­fore be­ing taken on blue lights to hospi­tal.”

A wit­ness to the in­ci­dent, who did not wish to be named, said: “The man had a knife stick­ing out of his left side, be­tween his hip and his ribs. He was ly­ing on his side.

“The girl and the man giv­ing him first aid were telling him he would be OK. She had her hand­bag un­der his head.”

West Mid­lands Po­lice have been asked to pro­vide de­tails on the in­ci­dent.
