25 year old in a serious condition following manchester stabbing

A man is in a serious condition after being stabbed in Manchester city centre.

At 12.40am on Sunday 26 January 2014, police were called to the Triangle near to the junction with New Cathedral Street following reports a 25-year-old man had been stabbed.

Officers arrived and found the man had been stabbed in his torso. He was taken to hospital and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Detective Inspector Andy Naismith said: “We are currently studying CCTV to establish what happened in the early hours of this morning and how many offenders were involved but believe this has been the result of some sort of earlier altercation.

“Obviously people will be concerned about this, especially 24 hours after another man was stabbed in the city centre, but I can reassure them that these two incidents are not linked.

“I would ask anyone who may have been in or around the area at the time of the incident to call police, even if you feel the information you have is insignificant to our investigation.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 3221 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
