Police launch attempted murder investigation after man stabbed in Stamford

A man is in hospital in a serious condition

We have launched an attempted murder investigation following the serious assault of a man in his 20s at Stamford bus station yesterday evening (21 February).

We received a report that two vehicles had arrived at the bus station at 10.16pm and an altercation then began between the occupants of one of the vehicles and people already in the bus station.

The fight is reported to have moved to the street.

Response officers were deployed and on arrival found a man in his 20s with multiple stab wounds. He received emergency treatment at the scene and is now in hospital in a serious condition. It is believed that the people involved were known to each other.

Those involved had dispersed on arrival and immediate searches were conducted to locate suspects.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in the early hours of this morning.

Another 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of affray. Both are still in police custody.

We remain on scene today and St Peter’s Hill is closed while we carry out further enquiries, and we would ask people to avoid the area. We would also ask people to refrain from speculating on social media about the incident while we investigate the circumstances.
