A shocked resident in a leafy suburb has described hearing "shouting and loud voices" moments before a man was stabbed in the street in broad day light.
Armed police rushed to the scene in Holbourne Grove, High Green, after reports that a man had been knifed at 11am yesterday morning.
A man who lives on the street and gave a witness statement to police said: "I was in the garden when I heard loads of shouting and loud voices.
"I didn't see the actual attack but I saw all of the police afterwards. It's a nice, quiet street so it is worrying."
He added: "I have lived here for more than 30 years and you used to see more bobbies on the beat. I know there has been cut backs but having a police officer out patrolling is a really good deterrent."
A 36-year-old man was arrested over the incident a short while after police pulled over a taxi on Halifax Road, Grenoside. The victim was taken to hospital with minor injuries. Call police on 101.
