A SUSPECT questioned by police over the stabbing of a Sheffield woman needed hospital treatment after being set upon by a group of men.
The 25-year-old was attacked outside a house on St Ronan’s Road, Nether Edge, and was taken to accident and emergency.
Locals said around seven men had carried out the assault, pinning the man to the ground and striking him.
The man had previously been questioned by police in relation to a wounding at a house in Darnall last week, before he was attacked in Nether Edge on Sunday.
A police spokeswoman said: “We can confirm officers attended an incident on St Ronan’s Road at approximately 11.25pm on Sunday, October 7.
“An investigation has been launched which is in its very early stages.”
