THREE men were taken to hospital after being attacked in a Batchley flat.

About 2.40am on Thursday (December 27), two men entered the flat on Oak Tree Avenue, through an unlocked door and demanded to know where drugs were kept.

The offenders then attacked three men inside of the flat, kicking one in the face, hitting another man in the face and it is believed they struck another man with a chair leg. They then continued to search the house.

All the victims were taken to hospital, one with a suspected broken nose. A woman was also hurt at the scene.

Police cordoned off the area and a man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed until February.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Sophie Gaffney at Redditch Police Station on 101.
