Police officers injured by man with a knife in Old Trafford

Two police officers have been injured after being attacked by a man with a knife in Old Trafford.

Police were called to Stamford Street at 6.45pm to a report of an argument between neighbours. At a house there they were attacked.

One officer suffered a cut head and the other an injured shoulder. Both men are in hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life threatening. A man was arrested and remains in police custody.

Thankfully neither officer appears to be seriosuly injured but this demonstrates the daily dangers faced by our officers when responding to incidents.

Officers managed to take control of the situation, despite the injuries suffered, and quickly made an arrest.
