Man arrested after Lincoln ‘stabbing’

Armed police in Bracebridge

A 36-year-old man was arrested after allegedly stabbing another male in Bracebridge, Lincoln where a machete was recovered during a raid by armed police.

Firearms officers from Lincolnshire Police were called to Victoria Street shortly before 8pm on Wednesday, September 23.

Police said a man in his 20s was taken to hospital for treatment for injuries believed to be stab wounds, but they are not life threatening.

Local resident Darren Gallacher told The Lincolnite that neighbours were asked to stay inside whilst the raid was taking place at a flat at Fleming House. He believes a lot of drugs were found, but this has not been confirmed.

This is the second time in less than a week that police have raided Victoria Street.

Four people were arrested – three men aged 58, 36 and 27, and a 35-year-old woman – after police found what was believed to be crack cocaine at a house on the street.
