According to reports, police believe that the attack was “deliberate” and they are now looking for the three men who appear to be involved from CCTV footage.

According to CNN, one man, a 39-year-old from the nearby town of Wolverhampton has already been arrested in connection to the attack. But now, police are looking for help in locating the whereabouts of the other three men photographed below.
