Detectives have launched an investigation and are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was left seriously injured following an incident in the Ecclesfield area.
Just after 12am on Sunday 17 June, emergency services were called to Yew Lane where it was reported that a 16-year-old boy had been stabbed outside of Player’s Lounge.
The boy was taken to hospital to be treated for stab wounds to his upper body. His condition is described as serious but stable.
There were a number of people in and around the bar that evening who officers are urging to come forward, as Detective Constable Leon Hobson, investigating, explains.
“We know that around 50 people, if not more, were in the area around the time the incident occurred, and while some have assisted with our enquiries, there are still a large number of people we believe may have information who have not yet come forward. It is those people who I’d ask to please get in contact with us.
“At this time, the motive around the incident remains unclear but we do believe that the people involved were known to each other.
“I’d urge anyone who saw what happened, or who has any information that could help us as we continue to investigate, to contact us.”
Please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 1 of 17 June 2018, with any information.
