A man was stabbed when he was walking along a road on Friday.

The 30-year-old victim was walking along Wisden Road in Stevenage when he was approached by two men.

An altercation took place between the men and victim, which resulted in the victim being stabbed in the back of his leg. It is unknown what was used to cause the injury, and the victim has since had surgery.

The first offender is described as a white man in his late 20s, of skinny build and about 5ft 8ins tall. He had blonde shaved hair and was wearing a grey hooded top and blue jeans.

The second offender is described as a white man in his late 40s and of small build. He was clean shaven and was wearing a black coat, dark coloured trousers and a black bobble hat.
