Police said an 18-year-old man, of Floyer Road, in Birmingham, was also arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

The four men returned bail on Monday and were told they face no action.

At the time a witness told The News he saw a young man on the steps of one of the shared houses.

He said: ‘It was pretty horrific. The guy was stabbed badly.’

The street was shut for around four hours and was one in a spate of stabbings in the city in September.
