Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses and information after a man was stabbed in Carlisle.

Shortly after 4am on Wednesday (1st January 2014) paramedics and police were called to an address on Raffles Avenue, Carlisle following the report of a stabbing.

A 23 year old local man was treated at the scene for his injuries before being conveyed to Cumberland infirmary Carlisle where he was operated on. Due to his life threatening injuries he was subsequently transferred to the Freeman Hospital Newcastle for further surgery, where his condition is now described as ‘stable’.

Seven men from Carlisle, aged between 19 and 59, and one man from Wigton aged 24, were arrested on the day. Seven of the men have been released on police bail until 12th February 2014, while the police investigation continues. One man, aged 59 from Carlisle, has been released with no further action.

Detective Chief Inspector Lesley Hanson said:

“We are keen to speak to anyone who was at the party, or who may have any relevant information, to come forward and speak to us in confidence.

“Crimes like this are thankfully rare in Cumbria, and this was an isolated incident. We take incidents like this extremely seriously, and do not tolerate any physical violence in our communities.

“We have extra patrols in the area, and if anyone has any concerns I encourage them to speak to an officer.”

Anyone wishing to speak to the investigation team should ring Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for the Carlisle Incident Room.
