Detectives are investigating after a man was stabbed in Stoke-on-Trent.
We were called to a field opposite Abbey Road at 8.11pm yesterday (10 July) following reports that a man had been stabbed by another man in the street.
Local officers were sent to the scene and found the victim, a man in his 20s, with stab wounds. He was taken to hospital by paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service.
A large cordon has been set up in the area whilst officers continue to find out more about the incident.
Early inquiries are continuing to take place into the early hours of this morning (11 July). Officers have been speaking to residents in the area and making steps to secure CCTV and doorbell footage.
Detective Inspector Louise Booker said: “This incident has caused concern within the local community and we are working hard to find out the circumstances leading up to the incident taking place.
“A large police presence will remain in the area and patrols have been increased whilst we continue to complete our initial inquiries at the scene.
“I’d like to thank the public for their patience and co-operation at this time and would encourage anyone who knows anything to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with any information, particularly those with CCTV, dashcam and doorbell footage from the area at the time, are asked to contact us.
