Two charged after suspected scissor stabbing in Coventry city centre

A MAN and a woman have been charged after a suspected scissor attack in Coventry.

The pair were arrested in Corporation Street yesterday (March 11) in the city centre at 3pm after a man was allegedly stabbed with scissors.

Today, a West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “Last night 37-year-old Mathew Clamp, from Radford Road in Coventry, and 29-year-old Kirsty Allison, of no fixed address, were both charged with wounding and possession of an offensive weapon.

“Allison also faces another count of handling stolen goods after it’s alleged a laptop taken from a car was found in her handbag.

“Both were due to appear in court today.”
