Appeal for information after 2 men attend Salford Royal with stab wounds


Police are appealing for witnesses after two men were stabbed in Salford.

Shortly before 1:55am on Friday 29 April 2016, police were called to Salford Royal Hospital to reports that two men had attended the hospital with serious injury.

An 18-year-old man was found to have numerous injuries, including a stab wound to his thigh, and the other man, aged 19, was found to have a puncture wound to his hand.

The two have now left hospital to continue their recovery from injury.

It is not known where the incident occurred but police are appealing for anybody who may have information to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Julie Connor from GMP’s Major Incident Team said: “We were called to Salford Royal after reports that men had presented themselves at hospital with some rather serious injuries.

“Thankfully their injuries were not life threatening and they have now left the hospital to continue their recovery from injury.

“At the moment, we don’t have much detail about the location of the incident other than it took place in Salford but given the injuries the men sustained, it is possible that somebody may have seen some sort of disturbance or physical confrontation.

“If anybody has any information that they believe could help our enquiries then please contact police.”

Anybody with information should contact police on 0161 856 5351, quoting log number 0127 of 29/04/2016, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
