The man was stabbed at around 1am on Sunday on the car park of the The Perry Hill Tavern on Perry Hill Road in Oldbury.

He went on to seek refuge inside the pub where staff called an ambulance for him, though the venue says the incident has nothing to do with them.

A second man involved with the incident also suffered injuries, but neither are thought to be life-threatening.

All five men were arrested on suspicion of wounding.

West Midlands Police say four of them have now been released under investigation, with the fifth man being released without charge.

"A 30-year-old man who we also arrested was released without charge."
