We have arrested two men after a man was stabbed with a glass bottle in Stoke-on-Trent.
At 4.03am this morning (21 July), we were called to Trinity Street in Hanley following reports of disorder.
We went to the scene and found the victim, a man in his late teens, with stab wounds.
He was taken to hospital by paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service.
His injuries aren’t believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.
We started work at pace to review CCTV footage and speak to those who were in the area at the time.
At this stage, we believe the victim was approached by two men following a verbal altercation. The men used a broken glass bottle to attack the victim before running away.
A short time later, we arrested a 25-year-old man, from Stoke-on-Trent, on suspicion of wounding with intent.
A 23-year-old man, from Stoke-on-Trent, was also arrested on suspicion of the same offence and possession of cannabis.
Both remain in custody and are being questioned by officers about the incident.
A cordon remains in place on Trinity Street and Hope Street whilst our enquiries continue.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or those with any CCTV or dashcam footage of the area are asked to get in touch with us.
