Man charged with attempted murder over Highgate disorder

A man has been charged with attempted murder following a violent disorder in Highgate on Sunday (18 June) during which a car collided with a pedestrian.

Mohammed Nadeen Raza, from Anderton Park Road in Moseley, appeared before Birmingham magistrates on Wednesday accused of deliberately driving his car at a 25-year-old man and leaving him critically ill in hospital.

Three other men arrested in connection with the disorder have been released while investigations continue.

An investigation has been launched into the trouble and officers are trawling through CCTV, speaking to victims and witnesses and examining evidence recovered from the scene.

Three cars have been recovered and sent for forensic examination.

Several other people went to hospital with injuries including multiple fractures, and stab and slash wounds, none of which are thought to be life threatening.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mallett from Force CID, said: “This is a complex investigation, we need to establish what happened so we can bring offenders to justice.

“Enquiries are on-going and I would ask anyone who saw anything in the Highgate area on Sunday or anyone who has knowledge of this incident to call us as soon as possible on 101.

“Those who do not wish to speak to police directly are asked to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. ”
