Detectives are appealing for information after a man was stabbed in Liverpool City Centre in the early hours of this morning, Sunday 29 September.

At 4.50am, emergency services were called to Dale Street after a man in his 20s was found with a stab wound to his abdomen. He was taken by ambulance to hospital where his condition is described as serious but stable.

CCTV, forensic and witness enquiries continue at the scene and we want to hear from any witnesses or anyone who has heard information since.

Detective Inspector Sabi Kaur said: “At this stage the exact circumstances are unclear, so we need to speak to anyone in the area of Dale Street who saw or heard anything around 4.45 this morning, or has since heard talk of who was involved.

“Bringing knives or any dangerous weapon onto our streets causes devastation to so many people and their families. Tell us what you know and we will take positive action to remove knives and those who recklessly carry them from the streets.

“We understand the fear and harm that knife crime causes across the country, and Merseyside Police is investing massive resources into the issue. In recent weeks and months, we have seized large numbers of weapons and made significant arrests connected to knife crime. Much of this is down to the information our communities provide.

“If you don’t want to speak to us directly, call Crimestoppers or speak to your local authority. However you get this vital information to us, make sure you get it to us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact @MerPolCC or 101 with reference 223 of Sunday 29 September. Alternatively, you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
