A man has been stabbed and another run over in incidents in Sheffield city centre, which police have linked.
South Yorkshire Police say emergency services were called to reports that a man had been stabbed on Carver Street or Rockingham Street just after 3am on Saturday morning. Shortly after, they received a second report that a man had been hit by a car at the same location.
The force says it is linking the two incidents, and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital with a stab wound, where he remains in a serious but stable condition. A second man, also in his 20s, was taken to hospital with potentially life-changing leg injuries.
It is said that a third man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of possession of controlled drugs with the intention to supply and remains in police custody at this time.
Rockingham Street and Carver Street were cordoned off following the incidents and will remain so while officers carry out investigations.
Detective Inspector Mark Cockayne, investigating, said: “I know incidents of violence such as this will be a cause for concern for people who live, work in and visit Sheffield city centre.
“There will continue to be a heightened police presence in the area today as officers continue their work and to provide reassurance. Please speak to them if you have any concerns or any information which could help the investigation – they are there for you.”
Anyone with information which could help officers should call 101 quoting incident number 196 of 9 September.
