RESIDENTS in Sheffield have told of their shock after a young man was the victim of a stabbing on their street.
The 23-year-old man was knifed on Sunday on Castledale Grove, Manor, and taken to the Northern General Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
Fred Radford, aged 55, said he was unaware the stabbing had happened on his street, but had spotted a police car on the road at around 10pm.
“I didn’t know it was on this street,” he said.
“It’s not a bad area, I don’t feel threatened on here, and my wife and kids certainly don’t.
“Things like this don’t happen to us, we keep ourselves to ourselves,” added Fred, who assembles springs for lorries and cars at a factory in Rotherham.
Fellow Castledale Grove resident Ben Kaz, 41, told The Star there were usually “no problems at all” on the street and added: “It’s usually nice and quiet, I’ve lived here a long time and I’ve never had any problems.
“To be honest I’m shocked to hear about the stabbing - it’s a bit strange.”
South Yorkshire Police confirmed they are investigating and that the victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
