Terror as man stabbed in south Manchester

A 25 year-old man was stabbed and was rushed to hospital for treatment

Neighbours have described seeing people running and screaming after a man was stabbed in Longsight.

The drama unfolded on Turnbull Road, just off Slade Lane, shorty before 2am in the early hours of Friday.

A 25 year-old man was stabbed following a 'disturbance' at a house and was rushed to hospital for treatment.

Police say his injuries are not believed to be serious.

Residents living on the street have now described seeing people running, shouting, screaming and pushing each other before the man was left lying stricken in the street.

One resident at a shared house on the street, who did not want to be named, told the Manchester Evening News: "It was about 1:45am 

The stabbing happened just before 2am in the early hours of this morning 

“One of the people I live with had a few people round and in his room.

“And I heard lots of people running up and down the stairs.

“I didn’t think much of it at first and fell asleep but then I was woken up by again people running up and down the stairs, and people screaming.

“I also heard lots of commotion outside so I looked through the curtain and there was lots of people shouting and a guy on the floor.

“There was a guy over him and people screaming.

“I thought ‘I need to ring the police’ but when I got through to them and gave them the address they said it had already been reported and a few seconds later I heard all the sirens. An ambulance and about four or five police cars.

Residents have described a chaotic scene at the time of the attack 

“I’m not sure who it is who has been stabbed.

“But the police said to me he’s okay and he came here this morning.

“I’m also not sure where it happened but there was blood on the wall inside the house.

“As soon as the police arrived me and my other housemate were asked to get out and we’ve just been sat in our cars for 12 hours.

"The whole street was out."

The man's injuries are notn thought to be serious police said 

“It’s been a tough night really.

“I work from home so I’ve had to ring in at work which was a bit embarrassing.

“It does make you wonder who you’re living with.

“I’ve spoken to people who’ve lived on this street since the 1970s and they say they’ve never seen anything like it."

Another neighbour said: “I was inside and heard a car alarm. It also sounded like someone falling. I looked out of my window and there was a man on lying on the floor. He wasn’t moving. Another man was crying and shouting ‘help’ and ‘call the ambulance’.

Detectives were also at the scene carrying out enquiries 

"After about 2 or 3 minutes the police and ambulance came together.

"The street has been taped off since. I still don’t know what has happened, whether it happened in the street or in a house and he came out."

Mohammed Akram said he looked out of his window after hearing noises around 2am and saw "four people pushing each other."

He said he didn’t see what happened afterwards but that he also heard a car alarm going off and that someone was also banging a wheelie bin.

A section of the residential street remained taped off this afternoon with two officers standing guard.

What appeared to be a pile of clothes were visible inside the cordon as plain clothes detectives carried out enquiries.

Police were called just before 2am on Friday 14 May to reports of a disturbance at an address on Turnball Street.

A Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokesman said: "Officers, along with NWAS attended, and found that a 25-year-old man had been stabbed.

"He was taken to hospital for treatment, his injuries are not believed to be serious.

"No arrests have been made, but officers believe this was a targeted attack.

"Inquiries are ongoing."
