Man found bleeding in Stapleford street with ‘several stab wounds’

A 20-year-old man has been taken to hospital after he was allegedly stabbed and hit with a glass bottle in Stapleford.

Nottinghamshire Police says officers discovered a victim bleeding on Ilkeston Road following reports of an attack in Wagtail Close, at around 2am on Thursday, August 5.

He had several stab wounds but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening or altering.

Two men, aged 20 and 23, have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Detective Constable Laura Whittington, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The victim has serious injuries and is currently being treated in hospital. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

“We believe that those involved are known to each other and there is no threat to the wider public.

“Members of the public can expect to see an increased police presence and we may be speaking to them as we carry out our door-to-door inquiries.

“Nottinghamshire Police treats knife crime extremely seriously which is demonstrated by the fact we have two dedicated knife crime teams but we also have a whole raft of measures, working alongside partners, to prevent knife crime too, which has seen offences fall by 15 per cent in the last year.

“We know every knife crime is shocking for the community as it always has potentially serious consequences and I want to reassure the public that we always act swiftly and robustly to reports of knife crime.

“If you know of anyone who carries a knife, please let us know so we can ensure it doesn’t end up on the streets.

“If anyone saw or heard anything connected to this incident, please don’t hesitate to call us with any information.”

People can call 101 quoting incident 88 of 5 August. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
