We are appealing for information following an assault in Seaforth yesterday (Sunday 31 October).
At around 6.30pm we received a report of a male with multiple stab wounds on Sandy Lane.
It was reported that he was stabbed on Claremont Road.
Emergency services attended and the victim was taken to hospital for serious injuries.
He remains in hospital in a stable condition.
The victim’s mobile phone was reported stolen during the incident.
Extensive CCTV, forensic and house-to house enquiries are being carried out by police to find those responsible and we are urging anyone with any information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Jay Halpin said: “We are in the early stages of an investigation into an appalling attack which left a young man injured.
“Knife crime has no place whatsoever in our communities and we rely on members of the public coming forward with information about such incidents to keep our streets safer.
“If you were in the Seaforth area yesterday evening and saw anything or anyone suspicious then please come forward. Similarly, if you were driving in the area and have dashcam footage then please review it and if you see anything let us know.
“Tell us what you know about this incident and we’ll take positive action to remove those who use weapons to cause fear and harm in our communities from our streets.”
Anyone with any information, please contact our social media desk on Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ with any information, with reference 21000757370
