An investigation is under way and police have asked for witnesses to come forward.

Police update after triple stabbing

West Midlands Police today confirmed a man was arrested after a triple stabbing in Wolverhampton city centre.

A 39-year-old man was detained following the attack on North Street in the early hours of Sunday.

Officers released the man pending further investigation.

Molineux subway which was cordoned off by police

Police cordoned off the area, near to Wolverhampton Civic Hall, after two men were left with serious injuries.

An appeal has since been launched to trace the third victim, who fled before officers arrived.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police confirmed the search was still ongoing.

She said: "Officers are still trying to locate the third victim, and the main offender."

A major investigation was launched at the weekend after three men were stabbed in the city centre.

Two men were found on North Street, near to Wolverhampton Civic Hall, in the early hours of Sunday morning with serious injuries.

A third man sustained a cut to his hand – but West Midlands Police revealed earlier this week that he had fled before officers arrived.

The man sought medical treatment at the triage centre in the city and then got into a Go Cars taxi and asked to be taken to Dunkley Street – but was dropped off in Waterloo Road.

A police cordon stretched from North Street to Molineux subway underneath the Ring Road.

West Midlands Police has since launched an appeal to track him down to assist the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
