Extra questioning time after Birmingham family stabbed
Police have been given more time to question a 17-year-old arrested in connection with the stabbing of his two sisters and mother in Birmingham.
The three victims were taken to hospital on Wednesday after a neighbour heard screams and called the police.
The 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder at the family home in Small Heath.
The girls, aged 16 and 10, are in a serious condition in hospital, West Midlands Police said.
Their mother, in her 40s, is in a stable condition.
She was found with the 16-year-old inside the house, both with multiple knife wounds, while the 10-year-old was found on the pavement outside, also with multiple stab injuries.
A baby girl found unharmed inside the house is currently being cared for by family members.
The boy was arrested in the street and police found a knife nearby.
"This appears to be a contained, domestic incident. One man was arrested outside the address and we are not actively seeking anyone else in connection with the incident," Ch Insp Jack Hadley said.
