A 52-year-old man has been charged with wounding two paramedics who were stabbed during a 999 welfare call-out to his home.
Martyn Smith of Stephens Close, Wolverhampton, is accused of two counts of wounding with intent, following an incident at a maisonette on Monday, West Midlands Police said.
The attack unfolded after medics Michael Hipgrave and Deena Evans gained entry to a maisonette in the road at about 12.20pm.
Mr Hipgrave, who suffered a slash wound to his back and required surgery, was discharged from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on Monday night. He continues his recovery at home, said the West Midlands Ambulance Service.
Ms Evans suffered a stab wound to the chest and remains at the hospital in a stable condition after undergoing surgery.
A spokesperson for the ambulance service said both staff members were “recovering well”.
