Police probe into ANOTHER stabbing on Sheffield's streets continues
A police probeÂ into another stabbing in Sheffield last nightÂ is continuingÂ this morning.
Violence flaredÂ on Buchanan Road, Parson Cross, at around 8pm yesterday.
COURT: '˜Samuel Baker is dead for one reason: young men, some still boys, carrying knives,' judge tells Sheffield teen killer South Yorkshire Police said there was one casualty, whoÂ suffered minor injuries in the knife attack.
A man in his 20s was arrested over the incident and remains in police custody this morning.
He is being held on suspicion ofÂ wounding following the incident near toÂ Nayab's takeaway.
There have been eight fatalÂ stabbings in Sheffield so far this year, with knife crime in the city and nationally on the rise.
Yesterday's attack came on the same day that a 16-year-old boy was jailed for two years and eight months over the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old boy in Sheffield.
Sam Baker was stabbed twice with his own knife he had been carryingÂ during an altercation in Lowedges Road, Lowedges, on May 24.
His killer, who cannot be named for legal reasons,Â pleaded guilty to his manslaughter last week on the basis he stabbed SamÂ in self-defence.Â
Prosecutor, David Brooke QC, told Sheffield Crown CourtÂ how the two boys were known to each other, and that Samuel had in fact robbed his attackerÂ at knife point for cannabis and cash at the beginning of this year.Â
