Commenting on the attack on BirminghamLive’s facebook page, Teresa Humphries wrote: “I was up there yesterday, couldn’t wait to get out. There was a lot of men walking around zombiefied. Very scary.

“I didn’t feel comfortable there. Such a shame as the city centre is a lovely place to have a stroll. I don’t think i’ll be hurrying back in a while.”

Nabila Sattar added: “Sounds like something from a horror film.”

Anyone with information about the attack, or the circumstances leading up to it is urged to contact West Midlands Police on 101, quoting log 2333 3/8.
