Alert message sent 04/07/2020 11:57:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear residents,

I hope you are safe and well.

Springfield and Kingsheath neighbourhood police teams successfully apprehended a suspect in possession of a 2 foot long machete in Percy Road, Sparkhill.

Acting on reliable intelligence, the suspect was caught 'red handed.'

Both owner and machete have been taken off our streets and potential harm averted!
Appropriate intervention and prevention strategies are being implemented for the perpetrator.

Weapons that may kill have no place in our society so if you know of anyone carrying weapons please do the right thing and get in touch. You can also do this anonymously through the charity crimestoppers.

West Midlands Police recorded 3,428 serious crimes involving knives or sharp instruments in the West Midlands Force area in 2018/19.

Let's get it to ZERO!

You see it. You report it. We remove it!
