Officers are continuing to investigate a stabbing which took place last week in Gorse Hill, and are releasing this image of the suspect taken by a witness.
We were called on Tuesday, August 1, at around 11.30am after a man in his 30s suffered injuries during an assault in Handel Street, Gorse Hill.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
Enquiries remain ongoing into the incident, and we are releasing this image to the public with the hope that it may prompt further witnesses of the incident, or that someone may have seen the suspect in this clothing that day.
The suspect is wearing a grey hoodie with white patches on the upper arms, with grey joggers and grey trainers. They are thought to be of mixed-race.
Investigating officer DC Lauren Hawkins said: “This was a targeted incident in which a man has suffered serious injuries.
“By releasing this image of the suspect, we are hoping that it may prompt further witnesses of the crime to come forward.
“If you saw this person dressed in these clothes last Tuesday then please get in touch with us.
“Any little piece of information could be vital in helping us piece together their movements and identifying them.”
If you can help, please contact us on 101 quoting reference 54230080684.
