Man stabbed and kicked in the head in Woolston attack

Daily Echo: Man stabbed and kicked in the head Man stabbed and kicked in the head

A MAN was stabbed then kicked in the head as he lay bleeding on the ground in a Hampshire street.

The victim was attacked after being dropped off by a friend in Portsmouth Road, in Woolston, Southampton.

Police say the man was near the New Bridge Inn when he was stabbed with “some sort of sharp object” then forced to the ground and kicked in the head.

The victim received two minor stab wounds in the attack on Monday between 6pm and 7pm that are not life threatening.

House-to-house enquiries have been carried out and forensic work is underway while officers are also appealing for information.

Detective Sergeant Will Whale said: “This was a nasty attack on a man who was left needing hospital treatment. At this stage we don't why he was targeted.

“The attack happened in the early evening in an area where it's likely there would have been quite a few people walking and driving past. I would appeal for anyone who saw the incident or anyone acting suspiciously in the area around 6 to 7pm on Monday night to contact me.”

Det Sgt Whale can be contact on 101 or information about the crime can also be left anonymously with the Crimestoppers charity by calling 0800 555 111.

Thanks for telling us so promptly that there is a madman around in Woolston who is dangerous, especially at 7pm when kids could be about.

Woolston seems to attract more trouble than all the supposedly 'rough estates' of the city put together.

Southampton seems to attract troublesome scum nowadays, you only have to walk round Aldis in Bevois Valley to see that & why do they need a bouncer in a supermarket FFS?

I was over there last Friday evening. There was a guy on a pushbike, with a blue hooded top and grey tracksuit bottoms, randomly riding uyp to people and giving them serious, unprovoked abuse. He started abusing a bloke who was walking his dog. the guy with the dog stood up to him, and he rode off and started on some other poor sod. I reckon he was a bit wrong in the head, i wonder if he knows anything about this attack?

I assume you let the police know instead of just writing it on here then?

I have moved to Swindon recently having lived in Southampton all my life and they have bouncers on their fruit and veg discount aisles in Tesco! It's crazy! The immigrants queue up and they are only allowed 3 items each because kids have been flung across the floor and fists have been thrown. Over reduced fruit and veg! Can you believe it?!
