Main article content
We’re appealing for witnesses to an assault which took place in Portsmouth last night (Tuesday 8 June).
At approximately 7.15pm, an altercation occurred between two people on Dugald Drummond Street, near to Greetham Street, during which a man in his 20s suffered knife injuries to his legs.
These are not life-threatening, and we believe this to be an isolated incident with no threat to the wider public.
The person with the knife was described as a teenage boy, white, slim, and wearing a grey tracksuit with black stripes down the side. He may have also sustained injuries during this incident but this is not confirmed.
Officers will be carrying out patrols in the area, and would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this take place.
We know there were at least two vehicles that drove past during the incident. One was a Müller milk delivery lorry, and the other was a silver/ grey estate style vehicle.
The driver of the silver/grey vehicle got out of the driver’s seat and spoke to the injured man.
We are particularly interested in identifying and speaking with this driver, and anyone else who witnessed the incident or has any information.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting 44210224141.
