A man has been arrested following a suspected stabbing near Exeter University last night.
A major police operation involving search dogs and helicopters began after the alleged assault on Leighton Terrace at around 10pm on Sunday (15/01) night.
An area close to the prison was cordoned off while they search for a weapon.
Another man is being treated in hospital.
Police have been keen to quash rumours of there being a danger to the public after posts on social media suggested there had been a mass stabbing and/or a prison escapee - both of which have been confirmed as false by officers.
