A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of wounding after a car was allegedly driven at a group of people on a Stourbridge pub patio.

A 24-year-old from Stourbridge handed himself in at a police station at 10.30am on Wednesday (June 23) after a car crashed outside the Gigmill pub on South Road last Friday night (June 18).

According to police, the driver of a silver Volvo car is understood to have got out of the vehicle and fired shots from a BB gun, hitting a man in the leg. The driver then drove the car towards a group standing on steps outside the pub.

Four people were hurt, including a man and woman in their 20s who suffered leg fractures and ligament damage respectively.

Two other women were also treated for less serious injuries and all four have now been discharged from hospital.

Detectives recovered the silver Volvo car at the scene and quickly identified a suspect.
