A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "Police received reports from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service at around 5.25pm yesterday evening that an 18-year-old had suffered stab wound injuries on Clough Road in Sheffield.

"Officers attended and the scene was cordoned off while initial enquiries commenced.

"The man was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries, described as serious. He remain in hospital today in a stable condition.

"Officers are investigating and would ask anyone who may have been in the area at the time to please make contact."

Last night, an eyewitness said: "The guy ran up the road and another man followed him - I thought they were messing about at first.

"Then these two other guys came up and all three started attacking him. The guy being followed was on the floor - he was getting his head stamped on and another guy looked like he was punching him towards the face and neck.

"I don't know if they were hitting him or stabbing him - there was blood all up the road. I've been told he's been stabbed but I didn't see a knife."
