Two men have been stabbed in a ‘deeply concerning’ incident near Easton Community Centre in Bristol – the second attack in 24 hours in that area.
Officers were called to the scene at around 3.14am this morning (Monday, August 31).
One of the victims, a 29-year-old man, was taken to hospital in a car by a member of the public. Police says he’s in a life-threatening condition and undergoing emergency treatment.
The second victim, a 28-year-old man, was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Acting Det Supt James Riccio, head of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said there were several people in the area at the time of the latest attacks who need to ‘come forward as soon as possible’.
“This is a deeply concerning incident in which two men have suffered very serious injuries and one remains in a critical condition in hospital,” he said.
“Although we haven’t yet established the exact location of the stabbings, we know there were a number of people in the area at the time. We need people who saw any part of this incident, or have information on who was involved to come forward as soon as possible.
“A cordon remains in place so we can carry out detailed enquiries at the scene and there will be an increased police presence in the area over the next few days.”
