Appeal for witnesses following serious assault

Posted on 19th May 2018

Our officers are appealing for witnesses after they were called to reports of a stabbing last night, just after 8.50pm, in Cambridge Street, Normanton.

On arrival, they found a 24-year-old man with stab wounds to his arm and chest. The man was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre where he was treated for his injuries, which are thought to be serious but not life-threatening.

It is believed that a number of men were involved in the incident and that they may have left in a car, after the assault.

A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and released under investigation.

DS Mike Sisman, said: “We’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident, or who was in the area at the time and noticed anything suspicious.

“If you have any information that may help with our investigation, please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting reference number 18000227671.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to reassure members of the public, that we believe this to be an isolated incident and that we are working very hard to find those responsible.”
