A 49-year-old man was stabbed in the thigh during an altercation in Stevenage last week.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the incident which happened in the park in Bedwell Crescent on Thursday evening.

The assault is reported to have occured between 8pm and 9pm at the rear of the shops close to the main park area.

An argument is thought to have broken out between the victim and the offender - who are believed to be known to each other - and one man stabbed the other in the thigh.

Det Con Kathryn Pink said: "There were still a lot of people in the park at the time of the assault and we are hoping that someone might have witnessed the incident or seen the men arguing prior to it.
