Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was attacked and stabbed in Leicester city centre on Saturday night (21 January).
Between 10.30pm and 11.30pm the victim – a man in his 20s – was waiting for a taxi in Granby Street when he was attacked by a group of four or five men.
During the incident, he suffered a puncture wound to his torso which was not life-threatening or life-changing. A quantity of cash and a mobile phone were also taken.
Detective Constable Neil Rawlings, the investigating officer, said: “Since the incident occurred, enquiries have been continuing to identify those responsible.
“It happened in a very busy area of the city at a time when I know there will have been a lot of people out and about. I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who has mobile phone footage of the incident.
“I’d also like to speak to business owners with CCTV or drivers with dashcams who were in the area. Any information you’re able to provide could help.”
