Two arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after teenager seriously injured in halls

Detective Inspector Cawail Wong said: “This was a serious incident in which a young man was stabbed. I would appeal to anyone who has information about it to contact the police.”

Students were evacuated from the block on Wednesday night and offered alternative accommodation and food. They will be able to return later on Thursday and there is no major danger to students and staff, the University of Warwick said.

The Sherbourne Halls are self-catering apartments for up to 12 students, with undergraduate tenants paying £ 7,200 a year and postgraduates £ 9,000.

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports of a stabbing near Gibbet Hill Road at 4.24pm yesterday. An ambulance, a paramedic and Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were dispatched to the scene.

“On arrival, we discovered a male patient who was being treated for serious injuries before we were driven to the hospital by land ambulance. The air crew traveled to the back of the ambulance to help continue treatment on the way to the hospital.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Warwickshire Police on 101 with reference to incident 276 on 17 November.
