Three teenage girls who ran over two men outside a Mosque last night in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, have been arrested after they tried to flee from the scene.


The victims, ages 39 and 59, were on their way to tarawee prayers at the Amana centre, Henley street, when they were run over.

The driver and passenger then tried to run from the scene but were stopped by a man who witnessed them fleeing.

The two men were taken to hospital with serious injuries after the hit and run with a silver Peugeot last night at 11.20pm.

The male who stopped the girls from fleeing recorded a video in which he said that the girls ‘were laughing’ and saying ‘we killed them.’

West Midlands police confirmed that all three girls arrested are 17 years old and are being detained for suspicion of failing to stop at a road accident, possession of cannabis and driving under the influence of drink and drugs.

Witnesses are being urged to contact the police on 121.
