A teenager from Wolverhampton has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing in Stafford.

A 22-year-old man was seriously injured when he was knifed outside the high-rise Pennycroft Court flats on Corporation Street at around 5.40pm on Saturday.

A boy aged 17 has since been arrested and bailed as the investigation continues.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "Detectives have arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the stabbing in Stafford on Friday evening.

"The teenager, from Wolverhampton, has been released under investigation pending further inquiries."

A major appeal was launched after the victim, named locally as Ben Miles, arrived at Stafford's County Hospital with multiple stab wounds.

Meanwhile police are appealing for witnesses over a stabbing that seriously injured a man in West Bromwich on Sunday afternoon.

Anyone with any information about the Stafford stabbing should call Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident 600 of August 24, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or at
