The violent attack happened on a car park on the Yew Tree estate, on the border of Walsall and Sandwell, on Wednesday evening.

The victims are reported to be two brothers, with residents coming out to help them until ambulances arrived.

One of them was stabbed in the leg and was left seriously injured while the second suffered "superficial" wounds to his shoulder and leg and is now back home.

Detectives believe it was a targeted attack and that the men were stabbed after suspects arrived at the scene in a black SUV-type car.

Nobody has been arrested and the area remained cordoned off on Thursday as officers searched for evidence nearby. Meanwhile the seriously injured victim continued to be treated in hospital.

A West Midlands Police spokesman urged any witnesses to come forward and said: "We believe the suspects arrived and left the scene in a black SUV-type vehicle.

"No one has been arrested, but we believe the attack is targeted."

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance, paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic.
