West Midlands Police say the incident, which took place in Lower Derry Street last Monday, has been left on file as the 28-year-old victim "has refused to provide a statement".

The man was stabbed multiple times as a group of men stole his black Toyota estate outside high-rise flats at around 7.15pm.

The injured man managed to make his way to the McColl's shop around 100 yards away where he collapsed outside the entrance before being helped by staff who called police and an ambulance.

He received surgery on a stab wound to his neck.

Photos taken at the scene showed a pool of blood left on the steps to the shop next door to the Rock Fryer on Hill Street.

A spokesman from West Midlands Police said: "The man had surgery on a two cm stab wound to his neck, the leg injuries are superficial. He is likely to have been discharged from hospital by now.

"The matter has been filed as the victim has refused to provide a statement and doesn’t want to support the investigation – there are also inconsistencies in his account of what happened."
