An investigation has been launched after two people were stabbed in Leicester.
Police were called to a restaurant in Upper Brown Street by East Midlands Ambulance Service at 11.10pm yesterday (Monday 15 July) and found that two 19-year-old men were being treated for stab wounds.
It was reported that there had been a fight at the restaurant and the suspects had left the scene before emergency services arrived.
One man was taken to the Leicester Royal Infirmary and the other to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. Their injuries are not life-threatening.
Detective Constable Jason Smalley, the investigating officer, said: “Our enquiries into this incident are ongoing this morning.
“I’d like to speak to anyone who was either in the restaurant or the area of Upper Brown Street last night. If you’ve not yet contacted police, then I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to do so.
“Did you see what happened, or did you see those responsible leaving the area?
“Any information you have, no matter how insignificant you think it could be, could greatly help my investigation.”
