West Yorkshire Police have told Calverley residents that they “do not believe there is a wider threat to members of the public” after a man was found with stab wounds in the early hours of Saturday morning.
In a statement released on the West Yorkshire Police – Leeds West Facebook page officers say they were called to Hollin Park Road at 3.21am on Saturday 7th September, where a 31-year-old man had been found with a stab wound to his armpit and a slash wound to the same arm.
The man had been injured in a disturbance near Clara Drive shortly before, during which a silver Citroen Xsara was attacked by a group of males.
A person claiming to be a friend of the injured man reported on social media that the man and a male friend who was with him had been ambushed by a gang of 15 youths when they were asked to help a young woman in trouble.
The victim underwent surgery in hospital and was later discharged.
While enquiries are still at an early stage, police have said that they “do not believe there is a wider threat to local residents or members of the public in Calverley”.
