The scene is just 400 yards away from the spot where a teenager was stabbed to death in Norwood Road two years ago.
South Birmingham College student Hazrat Umar, 18, was brutally attacked by Adam Muhammed using a Rambo-style knife on February 25, 2019.
Muhammed, then 17, fled the scene and left his victim for dead with 15 knife injuries. He was later locked up for 14-years and three months after pleading guilty to murder.
