Two men were sat in a car on School Road in Brierley Hill at around 8pm on Monday when a group smashed the windows and dragged the driver out, West Midlands Police said.

The driver was stabbed multiple times but police say his injuries are not thought to be serious.

The passenger also suffered minor injuries during the attack and was taken to hospital.

Police said today that they are investigating whether the victims were deliberately targeted in what was the latest of a spate of knife attacks in the region.

On Saturday two men were stabbed in Upper Gornal while on Sunday a man was stabbed to death in Great Barr and a woman was seriously injured in a knife attack in Walsall.

Meanwhile last week a youth was attacked with a knife and machete in Halesowen.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "We are investigating reports of a stabbing on School Road, Quarry Bank at 8pm yesterday.

"Two men were sat in a car when a group approached them, smashing the windows before dragging the driver out of the car.

"The passenger also suffered minor injuries after being assaulted during the disorder.

"We’re reviewing CCTV as part of our ongoing investigation."
