Officers in Sheffield are appealing for information following an incident of violent disorder which happened on Prince of Wales Road earlier this month.


At around 6.25pm on Monday 9 August, it is reported two vehicles were in collision near to the Lidl store at the junction with Castlebeck Avenue.


The occupants of both vehicles then ran across the road and were involved in an altercation close to the scene of the collision, which resulted in a 21-year-old man being stabbed.


PC Kev Sibley, investigating, said: “This was a shocking incident to happen right next to one of the city’s main roads, in broad daylight, and has ultimately left a young man with serious injuries.


“Our investigation is progressing and we’re exploring a number of lines of enquiry. The man who was injured is now stable in hospital.
“The vehicles involved were a grey Volkswagen Tiguan and a grey Audi Q7 and whilst a number of witnesses have come forward, further accounts would assist in piecing together what happened.


“If you witnessed the collision or the altercation at the side of the road, or have dashcam footage which captured any part or all of the incident, then please do get in touch.”


Anyone with information which could assist with our enquiries is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 736 of 9 August.
Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
