Police renew appeal for witnesses after concert stabbings

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses after three music fans were stabbed at a concert in Milton Keynes this weekend. Around 60,000 people were at The National Bowl on Saturday evening to watch the Swedish House Mafia perform their last ever gig in the UK.

It is thought a fight broke out at around 6.15pm in which three men were stabbed.

A 23-year-old man suffered a punctured lung and is still being treated at the Milton Keynes General Hospital. A 24-year-old man suffered a cut to his head and arm, and another 23-year-old was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the attack to come forward, particularly if they captured it on their camera or mobile phone. They also want to speak to a man who is described as white, in his early twenties, wearing a blue Nike t-shirt, black jacket and black jogging bottoms.

During the concert, three people were also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Anyone with information about the assault, especially if they captured video footage is asked to contact Detective Chief Inspector Justin Fletcher at Milton Keynes Police station via the new 24-hour non emergency single number 101. If you do not want to talk to the police, call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
