Bedworth: Three stabbed and eight others hurt in town centre attack – BBC


Two men and a woman have been stabbed and at least eight other people injured in a town centre.
Officers were called at about 08:00 BST to reports of people being assaulted in Bedworth, Warwickshire, on Coventry Road and Gilbert Close.
One of the men who was stabbed, aged in his 20s, is in a stable condition in hospital.
A 33-year-old man, from Bedworth, has been arrested and remains in custody, the force said.
It added he would undergo a mental health assessment and officers were not looking for any other suspects.
The other two stab victims have been discharged from hospital after treatment; the other victims all suffered minor injuries.
One woman told the BBC she was woken up by loud bangs on her front door and, when she answered, a man punched her twice and stabbed her in the throat with a pair of scissors.
A neighbour, Sheila Corcoran, said the attacks had made her feel unsafe: "You are always going to think now, is somebody going to come and bang the door?"
Det Sgt Rich Simpkins described it as a "nasty incident" and said he wanted to hear from anyone else who might have been attacked.
"We know that a number of people were in the area at around the time of the incident and that there may be more members of the public who may have been approached or assaulted," he said.
Extra police patrols will be carried out in and around the town centre, the force said.
