Meanwhile, West Midlands Police has also launched a murder investigation after a 23-year-old man was fatally stabbed at a nightclub.
Officers were called to the Crane venue in Adderley Street, Digbeth, just before 11.45pm on Boxing Day to reports the victim had been injured.
The man had been on a night out with friends when he was approached by a group of people, according to West Midlands Police.
Despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead about half an hour after officers were called, the force said.
Police said hundreds of people were at the nightclub at the time. They urged any witnesses to come forward.
Detective Inspector Michelle Thurgood said: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today.”
She added: “We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time. While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened.
“We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.”
West Midlands Police said the victim’s family has been told and will be supported by specialist officers.
