CCTV released of Small Heath attack in broad daylight that left victim with life-threatening head injuries

CCTV footage has been released of an attack in broad daylight that left a man with with life-threatening head injuries.

A 19-year-old man remains in hospital after the incident in Small Heath on July 3.

He was placed in an induced coma after being attacked outside the Coventry Road Medical Centre at 3.50pm. Police say it is not clear whether he will fully recover from his injuries.

Investigating Officer DC Dan Busby said: “The attack happened at a really busy time of day and there would have been a number of people in the area. But, to date only one witness has come forward and spoken to police.

“The victim, who was due to start a new job, has been left with severe head injuries and may never regain consciousness. We are working hard to piece together the evidence we have, but are urging anyone in the area at the time of the attack to come forward.

“If you were there, believe you know who is responsible, or have any other information which may assist our enquiry − no matter how small, please share this with us so we can take those responsible off the streets and prevent this from happening again.

“Please take a minute to view the footage. I acknowledge the CCTV is poor quality but it is enough to jog the memory of anyone who was in the area at the time.”

Anyone with information is asked to West Midlands Police on 101, quoting crime number 20BW/140089N/17.
