Merseyside Police is appealing for information after a serious assault in Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Just after 5pm, a 20 year old man was walking down Priory Road when at the junction with Walton Lane it’s believed he intervened in an argument between a man and woman, and received a stab wound to the chest.
He was taken to hospital by ambulance with serious but not life threatening injuries. Officers are examining CCTV from the area, and are speaking with witnesses.
Detective Sergeant Steve Reardon said: “This incident happened straight after the Everton v. QPR match and when there were a lot of people in the area. People would have witnessed this incident and I would urge them to come forward.”
“I’m also keen to speak to the woman who was seen arguing with the offender prior to the assault. She may have vital information that could assist with our enquiries. Anyone with any info about this incident or anyone who witnessed it is asked to call detectives on 0151 7774065 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
