One man critical and two hurt in Solihull attacks

A 22-year-old man is in a critical condition after an assault which police believe may be linked to a later attack on two men.

West Midlands Police said the man, who arrived at Solihull Hospital at 20:00 BST on Friday, had severe injuries.

Detectives believe the attack could be linked to a "large disorder" that happened an hour later in Highwood Avenue, Olton.

Two men, aged 24 and 52 , were found at the address with head injuries.

They were treated in hospital but later discharged, police said.

The force said a blunt instrument may have been used in the second attack.
