A man was taken to hospital in a life-threatening condition this morning after a suspected stabbing in a Letchworth alleyway – which remains cordoned off.
Six police cars and two ambulances were called to Glebe Road at 7.40am after reports of a stabbing, with a passerby telling the Comet an armed response unit was also on scene.
An ambulance spokesman said a man in his 30s was taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage in a ‘life-threatening’ condition with suspected stab wounds, but he is now believed to be stable.
The alleyway between Glebe Road and Cromwell Green has been taped off.
A police spokeswoman said: “Investigations are continuing, but it is believed to be an isolated incident between parties known to each other.

A neighbour told the Comet: “My 18-year-old old daughter heard shouting. We’ve recently brought a house away from this area – I was dismantling a bed and found all this craziness!”

A motorist who passed the scene this morning added: “The alleyway between Cromwell Green and Glebe Road, about halfway along the latter, is cordoned off with police tape.
“There are several police cars on Glebe Road and a couple more police cars stopped at the top of Cromwell Green, which is a small cul-de-sac. It looks serious.”
