Cheltenham: Man Discovers Stab Wound

A man who became separated from friends following a night out in Cheltenham arrived home to find a stab wound to his chest and a cut to his hand, police say.

The 48-year-old man from Southampton received a 5cm stab wound to his chest after walking home alone in the early hours of Thursday, 28th August. 

He had become separated from friends as they were walking back to Priory Street.
