Man stabbed and rushed to hospital after early morning attack on Sheffield street
A man is in hospital after being stabbed in an attack in his house in Sheffield.
The 46-year-old was found with multiple injuries, including stab wounds, when police were called to his house on Valley Road, Heeley, in the early hours of this morning.
His house was taped off and a CSI team was deployed earlier today.
No arrests have yet been made.
South Yorkshire Police said: “Police were called at 4.30am with reports that a man had been assaulted at a property on Valley Road in Sheffield.
“On arrival at the scene, officers discovered a 46-year-old man who had suffered multiple injuries, including stab wounds.
“He was taken to hospital where he remains at this time. Enquiries are ongoing.”
A neighbour said he heard and witnessed two incidents at the house this morning – one at 1am and a second at 4.30am.
He said in the first incident three offenders forced their way into the house and assaulted the man who lives there.
Police officers were called to the scene but the occupant of the house remained in the house.
A few hours later offenders forced entry again and were armed with bats and spades.
He said the occupant of the house was found in a ‘crumpled heap’ after the second incident.
The neighbour said he believes the injured man suffered a number of broken bones in the attack.
He said: “He didn’t look in a good way.”
