One man was stabbed and another received a foot injury in an attack in Manchester city centre.

In the early hours of Saturday 25 January 2014, police received reports that two men had been injured in the Cambridge Street area of Manchester city centre.

On arrival, officers discovered a 38-year-old man had received a stab wound to the back and a 40-year-old man had a broken foot.

Both men are being treated in hospital with the 38-year-old is in a serious but stable condition.

Police are now appealing for witnesses.

Detective Inspector Andy Naismith said: “From the information we have received so far, we believe three men caught a taxi from the Gorton area to Cambridge Street just after 1.30am before they attacked these two men. We believe this was a targeted attack and there is no further threat to the wider community.

“However, we do not have a description of these men and need more witnesses to come forward. I would ask anyone who may have been walking in the area and saw what happened to get in touch as soon as possible.”

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