We responded quickly following reports that two people had been stabbed following an event at the Admiral pub and were able to locate a man matching the description of the suspect shortly after receiving the initial call.
I appreciate that such a serious offence will have caused significant concern within the local community, and I want to reassure you that we are doing everything possible to progress our enquiries and ensure that those responsible are brought to justice for their actions.
Thankfully, the two victims were not as seriously injured as first thought and are making a good recovery; however, I want to stress that violence of this nature will not be tolerated in our local communities, and we will continue to do everything we can to keep our local residents safe and feeling safe.”
