Appeal following incident in Belgrave Gate, Leicester
Main article content
Detectives are appealing to speak to the man pictured following an incident in the Belgrave Gate area of Leicester last month.
Officers were called at 11.23pm on Sunday 14 November reporting concern for a group of people in the area. It was alleged that threats were being made to the group but no further details were provided.
As officers were carrying out enquiries to establish the circumstances, a report was received that a man had attended hospital at 11.40pm on the same day suffering from a stab wound injury. Enquiries established that this report was linked to the earlier incident. It is understood the man was attacked in the area of Painter Street, near Belgrave Gate.
The man has since been discharged from hospital.
Detectives have since been carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances of the attack and of any incident which may have happened prior to the attack.
Two men, aged 21 and 20, both of Leicester, have both been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. Two other men, aged 18 and 17, of Leicester, have both been arrested on suspicion of affray. All four have since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Detective Constable Dan Thorpe said: “We are continuing to carry out full enquiries to establish the full circumstances of this incident. As part of this we are appealing to speak to the man pictured who may have information which could help us. If you are the man pictured or you know who they are, you should make contact with us.
“Anyone who has any information in relation to the incident and who has not yet spoken to us should also get in touch. Please think back. Were you in the area of Painter Street and Belgrave Gate late on the evening of Sunday 14 November? Did you see or hear anything which caused you concern? Do you have any CCTV or dashcam footage from the area at the time?
“If you have any information, please speak with us and help us in this investigation. You can report online to us at www.leics.police.uk or you can call 101 quoting incident 21*665018.”
An image of another man was previously published as part of this appeal. The man who was pictured has since made himself known to police and therefore we have now removed his image from this appeal. Enquiries are continuing.
