On Saturday evening (9 April), Nuneaton and Bedworth police officers were called shortly after 10.30pm to reports of ‘a number’ of people fighting outside of the Saunders Hall Working Mens Club on Saunders Avenue, in Bedworth.

Upon arrival to the scene of the incident, enquiries ascertained that a 16-year-old boy had been taken to hospital with a suspected stab wound to his abdomen.

The teen sadly now remains in hospital in a ‘serious’ condition.

Whilst no arrests have yet been made, investigations are still ongoing – and this is being treated as an ‘isolated’ incident with no wider threat to the community.

Anybody who witnessed the incident – or has information which could help officers with enquiries – are being asked to report this to the police’s non-emergency number of 101, or alternatively through their website, by quoting incident number 394 of 9 April.

In addition to this, those with mobile phone or dashcam footage from inside or outside the club is also being encouraged to contact police.

Information can also be provided anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
