Three people were arrested – a man, 19, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and a man, 25, and a woman, 38, were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. All three have since been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Last Wednesday (April 3) a woman, 25, was arrested at an address in Redditch on suspicion of assisting an offender. She has been bailed pending further enquiries.
