A man has been stabbed in the face during a suspected sectarian attack in Londonderry.

He was walking with a teenage woman in the Chapel Road area of Derry around 2am on Wednesday when two men jumped out of a car and attacked him.

The victim, 26, was stabbed in the face and ribs during the assault and taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The two attackers are described as being in their mid-20s and one had blond hair.
