Four hours later, a house was broken into on Stonebrook Way, Harborne.

The householder disturbed a knife wielding burglar – police are also searching for Mr Martin in connection with this incident.

Officers are urgently looking for him in connection with a spate of violent attacks across the West Midlands.

Timeline

The 41-year-old is wanted on suspicion of kidnapping, beating, and stabbing a woman who is known to him on Sunday, September 5.

The terrifying incident happened in Solihull.

Luckily, the woman managed to get away and her injuries are not life threatening.

Since then, police are searching for Martin in connection with a number of violent acts throughout the area.

On Wednesday, August 8, police suspect that Mr Martin stole a black BMW from a woman in Kings Heath Park.

Lee Martin is wanted by police

The car was found two days later on Branscombe Close.

Another car was stolen just before 7.45pm yesterday (September 11).

A frightened woman was threatened with a knife after dropping her daughter off at university.

Her navy-blue Vauxhall Corsa was stolen in Lionel Street in the centre of Birmingham.

Superintendent Darren Walsh said: “All police forces in the country have been told that Lee Martin is wanted but we strongly suspect that he is still hiding out somewhere in Birmingham.

“In all of the crimes that he is suspected of carrying out, knives have been used meaning Lee Martin is possibly armed and very dangerous. That’s why we’re asking you to dial 999 if you see him.”

Crimestoppers have offered a £3,000 reward for information that leads to Lee Martin’s arrest.
