Boys, 13, held after man's stabbing

Two 13-year-old boys have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of a man in a city street.

A large area of St Ann's in Nottingham was cordoned off after the 27-year-old victim was taken to Queen's Medical Centre, where he remains in a serious but stable condition, a police spokesman said.

Officers said the two boys will be questioned about the incident by detectives.

Nottinghamshire Police officers were called to the scene in Stonebridge Road, St Ann's, at around 11.15pm following reports of a disturbance.

They are continuing to carry out a fingertip search of the area and cordons will remain in place until this has been completed, a force spokesman said.

Detectives believe there were a number of people in and around Stonebridge Road at the time of the incident, and they are appealing for them to come forward as they may have information vital to the investigation.

Detectives are appealing for anyone with information about the injured man, who is from the St Ann's area, or the disturbance in Stonebridge Road, which happened at around 11pm, to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 0300 300 9999 or the Crimestoppers service on 0800 555111.
