A MAN has been stabbed at a Southampton tower block.

Police were called to Redbridge Towers at 11.23am following reports that a man in his 30s had been stabbed.

The man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Police have launched an investigation and officers remain at the scene.

A resident who lives on the 16th floor told the Daily Echo that they had heard screaming, but thought it was just children playing.

She said: “It was on the floor above us which is the 17th floor."

Another resident said: “I’ve only just moved here so it’s scary that it’s happening right on the doorstep."

"My mum told me after she saw a status on Facebook.”

The Daily Echo has contacted Hampshire Constabulary for more information.
