Police are investigating after a young man was stabbed in the groin in Clifton County Park.

Local News

A young couple were out for an early evening bike ride on Sunday 5th August, when at around 5:50 pm they were approached by two suspects brandishing knives, demanding they hand over their bike. During the incident the male victim received a stab wound to the groin area.

It is believed that the injury is of a non-serious nature but things could have very easily turned out much worse.

Police were called to the scene at around 6:00 pm and the scene around the 'Look Out Sculpture'  was cordoned of so a forensics search could take place.

The two suspects made off with the 'GT Verb Bike' pictured above, so if anyone is offered one like it then please contact GMP on 101 log number 1813/Aug 5th.

People are being warned to remain vigilant when out and about in local parks.
