Dawsons Corner: Morning traffic chaos as police investigate stabbing

Morning commuters in west Leeds faced serious traffic delays around the Dawsons Corner and Thornbury Barracks area after a man was stabbed in Pudsey.

Officers were contacted shortly after 9.30pm last night when the 32-year-old man, from Bradford, attended Leeds General Infirmary with a serious stab wound to his chest. He is currently in a stable condition.

It is believed he suffered the injury during an incident in Bradford Road, Pudsey, near to Thornbury Barracks, at about 9pm.

The scene in Bradford Road is undergoing forensic examination and scene investigations have also been taking place at the Asda petrol station at the Owlcotes Centre, where the victim’s car was found.

A 19-year-old man, from Huddersfield, was arrested this morning in connection with the incident and is currently in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Elizabeth Belton, of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET), said:

“This is clearly a very serious incident and we are conducting a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding it. We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident in Bradford Road at about 9pm last night or who has any information that could assist the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact HMET via 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
