Detective Inspector Cawail Wong from Warwickshire Police CID said: “This was a horrific attack that has left two men with very serious injuries. At the moment they are in hospital in a stable condition but both of their injuries are thought to be life changing.
“At this time one of the lines of enquiry we are following is that the victims and the suspects were known to each other.
“We will have a lot of officers in the area today as we try to piece together what happened in the early hours of this morning and I would appeal for anyone with information to get in touch.”
