Bus passenger stabbed during phone robbery 

Detectives investigating a robbery on the top deck of a Birmingham bus over the Bank Holiday weekend have released CCTV images of two suspects.

It happened on the number 74 as it travelled along the Soho Road in Handsworth outside KFC at just after midnight on Sunday (28 August).

The victim − a 28-year-old man − had his phone snatched from his hand by a woman. He was then approached by a man who stabbed him twice − once in the side of the face and once in the arm − before the pair got off the bus and fled the scene.

His injuries were not serious, but did require surgery.

Images of the two suspects have now been released and officers want to hear from anyone who recognises either of them.

Information can be passed to police by calling 101 or alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Passengers using public transport can report crime or anti-social behaviour by texting ‘bus’, ‘metro’ or ‘rail’ followed by a space and then details of the incident including time, date, location and route number to 83010.
