vicious hammer and screwdriver gang which attacked teen
Police have released these CCTV images in a bid to trace a gang in connection with a vicious town centre hammer attack on two teenagers in Sutton Coldfield.
Two 17-year-old boys were targeted in the attack outside the HSBC bank, on High Street, when they were surrounded by a group of teens.
One of the group them asked what phones they had as another pulled out a screwdriver and a third produced a hammer.
After being hit on the head with the hammer one of the lads was repeatedly kicked and hit before being stabbed in the ear leaving a nasty 2cm gash. His friend was stamped on the head in the vicious attack.
Their ordeal only ended after a passer-by chased off the gang.
