A man has been arrested in Birmingham after a woman and two teenage girls were stabbed at a house in a suspected domestic incident.
Police received a call from Little Green Lane, Small Heath, at 7.20am by a resident who reported hearing screams from a neighbour’s home.
Police found and arrested an injured man nearby. They also recovered a knife.
Inside the house a woman, in her 40s, and a 16-year-old girl were found with multiple knife injuries.
Another teenage girl was found outside on the pavement. She had also suffered multiple knife injuries.
An unharmed baby was found inside the home and is currently being cared for by family members.
The arrested man was taken to hospital for treatment to a minor cut to his hand.
West Midlands Police Chief Inspector Jack Hadley said: “The seriousness of their injuries is unclear at this stage.
“This appears to be a contained, domestic incident: one man was arrested outside the address and we are not actively seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.”
A nearby school, Wyndcliffe Primary school, has been closed for the day as police have cordoned off the area to allow forensic examiners to scour the location.
