Two men arrested following Ketley incident. Did you see anything?

At around 10pm on Saturday night, it is reported a number of people were involved in a violent disorder outside The Wren’s Nest public house on Wren’s Nest Lane.

A 15-year-old boy suffered serious, life-changing injuries as a result of this incident and was taken to hospital, where he remains.

A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and violent disorder, and a 32-year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Andrew Dawson from West Mercia Police said: “This was large-scale violent disorder in a residential area and would have undoubtedly been shocking for anyone who witnessed it.

“We are therefore working hard to identify all those involved in this incident that has left a 15-year-old boy with life changing injuries.

“While investigations are ongoing, I know that there has been some speculation on social media. I would urge anyone who believes they have information that could help with our investigation to please get in touch, rather than commenting or sharing information over social media as this is not helpful to our investigation, particularly while in its early stages.

“Over the coming days, officers will continue to provide reassurance patrols and speak to people in the area.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage of the incident is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 785s of 27 July 2019.

Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.

    this is a horrid situation and i hope all culprits are caught, to all who doubt the police please remember its the government who have stripped all services up and down the country, even closing 600 odd stations. we are in dark times atm and our police forces are stretched beyond limits but i’m sure justice will be served regardless of lack of police presence. please help with police investigations and help this young lad get the justice he deserves, the police need the help of the public, its not their fault they are under powered
