Police have released CCTV footage as part of an on-going investigation into a serious assault that took place in Small Heath earlier this month.
A 19-year-old man was rushed to hospital with life-threatening head injuries and placed into an induced coma after being assaulted outside the Coventry Road Medical Centre at 3.50pm on Monday 3 July.
The man remains in hospital in a serious condition. The full extent of his injuries is not yet known and it is not clear whether he will fully recover.
Investigating Officer DC Dan Busby said: “The attack happened at a really busy time of day and there would have been a number of people in the area. But, to date only one witness has come forward and spoken to police.
“The victim, who was due to start a new job has been left with severe head injuries and may never regain consciousness. We are working hard to piece together the evidence we have, but are urging anyone in the area at the time of the attack to come forward.
“If you were there, believe you know who is responsible, or have any other information which may assist our enquiry − no matter how small, please share this with us so we can take those responsible off the streets and prevent this from happening again.
“Please take a minute to view the footage. I acknowledge the CCTV is poor quality but it is enough to jog the memory of anyone who was in the area at the time.”
If you have any information about this vicious assault please contact West Midlands Police on 101. Please quote crime number 20BW/140089N/17.
