Detectives from the West Midlands Police have launched an investigation after three men were found with stab wounds at a house in Wolverhampton. The victims are in a serious condition and are being treating in hospital after being found just after midnight on Saturday, 6 August.
Police were flagged down by a member of the public on Goldthorn Hill, Goldthorn Park, where two men were found on the street with stab wounds. A third man was found in the back garden of a house with stab injuries and the area has been cordoned off while forensic experts examine the scene.
Sergeant Carl Russell from Wolverhampton's Violent Crime Team said: "We have spoken to several people who told us that a car was seen to speed away from the scene shortly after the attack. Incidents of this nature are unusual in the area and we would reassure local residents that we are doing everything we can to locate those responsible."
The three men are aged 27, 31 and 36 and were treated by paramedics at the scene for serious injuries before being taken to hospital. Police have said that they are in the early stages of their investigation and are still trying to determine the motive behind the attack.
Officers from the West Midlands Police are conducting house to house enquiries and detectives are examining CCTV footage for any clues. Members of the public with any information on the incident are being urged to call the police on 101 or leave information anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Sergeant Russell said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have seen [the] car to come forward with information. We would also like to speak to anyone who saw anything in the street at the time to come forward."
