MAN STABBED, THEN ARRESTED: A 52 year old man was stabbed in Leeds, then arrested by police
A 52 year old man was found seriously injured in an alley in Leeds after being stabbed.
Detectives from West Yorkshire Police are appealing for information after a man was stabbed and seriously injured in an incident in Leeds.
At 7.33pm on Sunday 13 June, police were called to any alleyway off Hebden Green, Whinmoor, where a 52-year-old man had been found with multiple stab wounds, including serious injuries to his neck.
He was taken to hospital for treatment and is in a stable condition. He has been arrested on suspicion of attempted wounding in relation to the incident.
Enquiries showed the man had been chased by two other men following an altercation shortly before near to the Old Red Lion pub, in York Road.
Specialist searches and enquiries are ongoing into the incident.
Detective Inspector Richard Holmes, of Leeds District CID, West Yorkshire Police, said: “This man has received some very serious knife wounds and it is clear the consequences could easily have been much worse.
“We are carrying out extensive enquiries to establish the full circumstances and we would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any part of this incident.
“The area will have been busy at the time, both with people on foot and driving past, and we are particularly keen to speak to anyone with any phone or dashcam footage that could assist the investigation.
“We recognise that a violent incident of this nature will cause understandable concern in the community and we are working closely with our colleagues on the local neighbourhood policing team who are providing reassurance to residents.”
Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
