TWO men have been treated in hospital after being stabbed in Sheffield city centre.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the pair sustained injuries during an altercation on Carver Lane, Sheffield, at around 1.30am on Tuesday.

The two were part of a group that police said had walked from Carver Street along Division Street before becoming involved in a fight with two other men.

An 18-year-old from Tinsley sustained stab injuries to his chest and shoulder, which were treated at the Northern General Hospital and were not life threatening.

The other victim, a 20-year-old from the Gleadless area, suffered a cut to his thumb which also required treatment at the same hospital.

An 18-year-old from Wybourn and a 20-year-old from Gleadless were later arrested.

They were questioned by police and released on bail pending further inquiries.

Chief Inspector Iain Chorlton said: “Those intent on using violence will not be tolerated and we’ve been using a host of powers like dispersal orders and drink banning orders to remove trouble makers from the city centre.

“We have seen a 15 per cent reduction in violent crime in Sheffield compared to last year and we’re working hard to make sure that incidents like this are a rare occurrence.”

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting 125 of December 27.
