Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was stabbed in Blackpool.
Emergency services were called at around 4:25am today (June 10) to a report of a man who had been found unconscious on Dickson Road in the resort. Paramedics also attended the scene and found a man, believed to be in his 20s with a suspected stab wound to his chest.
He was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital for treatment and is currently in a serious but stable condition. No arrests have been made at this stage but an investigation is underway and enquiries ongoing.
Detective Chief Insp Lee Wilson, of Blackpool CID, said: “This incident has left a young man very poorly in hospital and I would appeal for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around Dickson Road, Springfield Street or General Road this morning or who has any information to come forward and speak to us.
“I have a team of detectives who are working on this investigation and we are following a number of lines of enquiry in order to try and identify the offender.
“I am keen to hear from anyone who may have CCTV or dashcam or any taxi drivers who may have been working in the area overnight.
“In order to allow us to do our work we have had to close some parts of Blackpool this morning and I am aware that this may cause people some disruption. I make no apology for this but I am grateful for peoples’ understanding and co-operation.”
