CCTV pictures have been released of four men believed to have been involved in a shocking attack outside a Black Country petrol station.

Police are yet to make any arrests after the incident in Tipton, where a man was stabbed and a car had its windows smashed by a gang armed with baseball bats.

The four men police want to trace

A 31-year-old man was left with a knife injury to his leg after the attack outside the Texaco petrol station and Morrisons supermarket on May 23.

The drama started when a car attempted to mow the man down on Park Lane East at around 7.50pm.

The targeted man managed to jump into a passing Vauxhall Corsa but couldn't escape the chasing car which followed him to the petrol station forecourt on the A461 in Dudley Port.

Armed police were then called as the chasing group got out of their car and attacked the Corsa with baseball bats and other weapons just metres away from the Morrisons convenience store and Subway shop.

In the resulting melee the victim was stabbed in the leg and left needing hospital treatment.

Police have since been working to trace the gang, who are reportedly in their 20s and Asian, and have today released CCTV images of four men they want to trace.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting crime number 20SW/114809B/18.
