Officers were called to the scene at around 1pm following an altercation in the Frodingham Road area between Porter Street and Percival Street.

A 20-year-old man was taken to Scunthorpe General Hospital and a 29-year-old was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary - both having sustained serious non-life threatening injuries.

Police are appealing for help to trace a white male, aged between 18 to 24, and around 6 feet tall with short brown hair in a crew cut style, wearing a blue hooded top, blue jogging bottoms and black trainers, who was seen running from the area.

“We are treating this matter extremely seriously and have a large number of resources in the area carrying out enquiries to locate and arrest the third man involved in the altercation.

“The altercation was a contained incident involving three people who were clearly known to one another. As a consequence the outstanding man is not believed to pose any danger to the wider public.

“We appreciate that the community will be alarmed by the incident and we will be providing reassurance and support with extra high visibility patrols in the area."

– Det. Chief Insp Bob Clark, Humberside Police
