Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are continuing to appeal for witnesses following a stabbing in Trowbridge over the weekend.

Searches have been carried out in the town centre after a man in his 40s was injured in an incident in the early hours of Sunday morning (24/11).

He is continuing to receive treatment for his injuries but his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

At this stage nobody has been arrested, but our investigation is continuing.

Acting Det Sgt James Fry, from Central CID, said: "We would like to thank for the public for their assistance in the early stages of this investigation and to reassure them that this is being treated as an isolated incident.

"Further to our previous appeal, we would be keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the areas of Timbrell Street, Church Street, Charlotte Square or Church Walk during the early hours of Sunday and may have witnessed an altercation or activity which they believe could be linked to this incident.

"Detailed searches of the bins in the immediate area have been conducted and Wiltshire Council has been advised there is no longer a requirement to put a hold on bin collection.

"Whilst extensive CCTV enquiries have been conducted people who live within the town centre area are urged to check any private CCTV between the hours of 4am and 4.45am hours on Sunday and to report sightings of people walking in the area to the police.

"We would also be keen to hear from anyone who has found any discarded weapons which may be of interest to police."

Anyone with information should call Central CID on 101 and quote crime reference number 54190116640. Information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111.
