Man stabbed after argument with motorist in Salford

A man has been taken to hospital with stab wounds after he remonstrated with a motorist. It happened at around 8.30pm last night, Friday 25 April 2014, when the 31-year-old victim and his friend were walking along Sherbourne Street West, near to the junction of Overbridge Road, Salford, when a black coloured car, possibly a Corsa, nearly hit the victim. The victim remonstrated with the occupants of the car, and one of the passengers got out of the vehicle, and stabbed the victim three times. The car then drove off, leaving the victim lying on the floor with stab wounds to his shoulder and back. Detective Constable Cathy Blain, based at Swinton, said: “This street is a busy thoroughfare, and regularly used by taxi's and local businesses on the industrial estate.“We are appealing to anyone who may have seen this car, or the assault, to contact us. “A young man has been left hospitalised with serious injuries, in what appears to be seemingly motiveless attack." “We now want people to help us catch the offenders.” Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
