A 19-year-old man has been taken to hospital after being stabbed in the stomach in Netherfield. Police were called to Victoria Road at around 10.25pm on Monday, April 11.
Police say they are pursuing multiple lines of enquiry and looking at CCTV footage as they try to find a male suspect who they believe may be responsible for the attack. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment, however his injuries are not currently believed to be life-threatening or life-altering.
It happened just hours after another stabbing in Oakdale Road in Carlton – where a 17-year-old boy was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police have told Nottinghamshire Live they are not treating the two incidents as linked in any way.
