A TEENAGER suffered a fractured skull after thugs shoulder-barged him to the floor in Tudor Grange Park.

The 18-year-old male victim, who had got out of his car after a gang of youths pelted it with snowballs, was rammed to the floor and hit his head on a metal post.

He remains in a serious but stable condition at Solihull Hospital.

The incident happened on Wednesday January 13 as the young man was driving along Monkspath Hall Road, away from Solihull town centre.

His car was deliberately targeted by the group, who were hanging around the pitch and putt course, at about 3.30pm said police.

“The man stopped his car to remonstrate with the youths when members of the group approached him from behind and shoulder barged him simultaneously to the back,” said a West Midlands Police spokesperson.

“This caused the victim to fall to the ground and as he did so he hit his head on a metal post causing a fracture to the skull.”

The offenders are believed to be about 16 to 17 years-old and were wearing sports clothing.

Police want to hear from any witnesses or anyone who has information about those involved. Call Solihull police station on 0845 113 5000.
