A man has been stabbed three times outside a house on Oakham Close in Swindon.

Officers were called to Toothill at around 16.30 yesterday afternoon (10 May) as paramedics treated the man's injuries.

Wiltshire Police believe the victim, who is in his 30s, knew his attackers.

This was not a random assault as we believe the victim was known to his attacker. We believe the person who stabbed our victim was male so we are appealing for witnesses to any altercation between two males or any male acting suspiciously, possibly leaving the address on Oakham Close this afternoon.

– Det Sgt Scott Anger from Swindon CID

Paramedics treated the victim at the scene before taking him to hospital for further treatment; the injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
