'I am scared, my little sister walks on this road every day'

A pile of clothes and a discarded bike were left behind a police cordon in St Ann's after a 21-year-old man was stabbed in broad daylight.

Police were called to Westville Gardens, near Woodborough Road, at 5.50pm today, July 5.

Witnesses reported seeing a group of youths and a girl who was left weeping after the man was stabbed in the leg.

He was rushed to the QMC and the cordon was still in place three hours later, with extra police drafted in to investigate.
