Detectives are appealing for witnesses – and anyone with dashcam or CCTV footage – to come forward after a man was attacked with a knife in Leicester city centre.
The incident happened near to the junction of Granby Street and Bishop Street at around 3.30am on Saturday (4 March).
The victim, a man in his 20s, suffered a significant slash wound to his arm. He was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
No arrests have been made, but an investigation into the incident is continuing.
Detective Sergeant Nick Woodrow, from the Complex Investigation Team (CIT), said: “From enquiries carried out so far, we know there were people in the area who were ending their night out when this incident occurred.
“I’d like to speak to anyone who was in the city in the early hours of Saturday morning and saw what happened – but I am also keen to speak to anyone who saw a silver Audi Q7 or a white BMW 1 Series.
“I’d also like to speak to any motorists who were in the area with a dashcam in their vehicle, or anyone with CCTV footage that could help.
“Any details you’re able to provide could assist our investigation.”
