They said: "We received reports of a stabbing at 11:34am today (Tuesday 17 October) at the bottom of The Moor in Sheffield city centre.
"Officers and the ambulance service attended the scene, and a man has been taken to hospital with stab wounds.

"No arrests have been made but enquiries are currently ongoing. Anyone with information which may assist is encouraged to call 101 quoting incident number 365 of 17 October. "

He crossed the police cordon with a police officer. Several patrol cars remain at the scene, with their blue lights flashing. Officers were advising members of the public of alternative routes.
