Police search for witnesses to stabbing

A MAN in his 30s was stabbed after he was attacked by a group of men in a Worcester park.

The victim suffered a stab wound to his upper leg, which is not believed to be life-threatening, during the attack in the park between Martindale Close and Bearcroft Avenue at 1.15pm on Monday.

He also suffered from injuries to his ribs, fingers, and head.

Police investigating the attack are now keen to speak to anyone who saw the incident, or who was in the area at the time to come forward to help with their investigation.

Two men, aged 24 and 23, and both from Wolverhampton, have been arrested on suspicion of assault with GBH with intent and have both been released under investigation. Detective Inspector John Cashion, from West Mercia Police, said: “I would reassure the community that this was an isolated incident and incidents of this nature are very rare.

“We are, however, looking to establish exactly what went on and are keen to speak to anyone who saw anything in the park at the time of the incident.”

Anyone with information is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 337S of June 5.

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
