Man stabbed in the leg in Eastleigh town centre
10:27pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in News
DETECTIVES are appealing for help tonight after a man was stabbed in a Hampshire town centre.
The drama unfolded earlier this evening when a man ran up Chamberlayne Road, Eastleigh and into the police station on Leigh Road, with a stab wound to his leg.
The 27-year-old told police that he had been stabbed, with what is believed to be a knife, in an alleyway close to the station, at around 4.30pm.
Fortunately his injuries were not life-threatening but he was taken to Southampton General Hospital via ambulance and is currently receiving treatment.
The attacker, who police believe is known to the victim, made his escape and was seen running from the scene.
He is described as being black, aged in his 20’s and was wearing a blue top.
Tonight officers are appealing to parents who may have been picking their children up from two local schools, Norwood and the Crescent, to come forward if they saw anyone acting suspiciously around the time of the incident.
Anyone with information about the incident should call Eastleigh CID on 101.
