Witness appeal after two injured in Trowbridge stabbing

Alert message sent 14/02/2019 09:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are appealing for witnesses after two people were injured in a stabbing in Trowbridge.

We were called to the Tesco Extra car park in County Way, Trowbridge, at 11.15pm last night.

We were at the scene with four minutes and quickly began a search of the area.

One victim, a man in his 20s, has been taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol with life-threatening injuries.

A second victim, also a man in his 20s, has been taken to the Royal United Hospital with minor injuries and is expect to be discharged this morning.

Nobody has been arrested at this stage.

Det Sgt Neil Le-Maire, from Melksham CID, said: “We know this will cause concern amongst the local community, but we want to reassure you that we believe this is an isolated incident.

“There will be a strong police presence in Trowbridge throughout the day, carrying out enquiries.

“We need to speak to people who may be able to help us – were you in the area late last night and perhaps witnessed something suspicious? Do you have dash cam footage which could help us? Do you live near to Tesco and have private CCTV footage.

“If you think you have information then please call us.”

We would urge anyone with information to call Melksham CID on 101, quoting log 319 of yesterday (13/02/19), or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
