Two Stabbed In Swinton

Two people suffered stab wounds at a party in Swinton at the weekend.

It happened at a flat above the Mobilezone shop on Chorley Road in Swinton, just after midnight on Saturday 7 January.

Police were called following reports of a disturbance after a party, and discovered a 16-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man had suffered stab wounds.

The 16-year-old boys had wounds to his chest and cuts to his neck, back and chin and the 20-year-old man was treated in hospital for three stab wounds to his chest.

Detective Constable Neil Higginson, of Salford CID, said: "At this stage, it is unclear exactly what happened but what we do know is that this party ended in violence and two people suffered stab wounds.

"The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening but anytime a knife is used to attack someone it has the potential to seriously injure or even kill so we need to establish exactly what happened that night and bring the offenders to justice.

"I want to appeal to anyone who might have been at that party and witnessed what happened to call us."
