Three people have been arrested after a series of stabbings in Belfast City Centre.

The three men, aged 23, 29 and 38 were reportedly involved in a fight on Great Victoria Street just after 7pm on Saturday evening

One of the men was found at the Great Northern Mall complex on Great Victoria Street, while the remaining two were apprehended a short time later on the Dublin Road.

All three were taken to hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries, and were later arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

"At this time we believe that only the three men in custody were involved in this incident however we would like to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened. Great Victoria Street and the Dublin Road would have been busy at the time and we are certain that a number of people would have seen the altercation unfold and may not yet have spoken to police. We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at around 7.15pm"
