A MAN has been arrested in Stourbridge this morning (Monday, September 19) following the hit and run near Hob Green Primary School last week.

Police confirmed that a 27-year-old man was arrested at an address in Stourbridge in the early hours of this morning on suspicion of assault.

Four people were injured, including two young children – both aged three – and two women, when they were hit in Hob Green Road, Wollescote, at 9am last Monday (September 12).

They were all taken to Russells Hall Hospital for precautionary checks but were not seriously hurt.

Although the incident was not linked to the school, it was witnessed by several children and parents.

Headteacher Stuart Brown said: “We are providing support in the school for children and staff who witnessed the incident and our thoughts and best wishes are with those who were injured.”
