Northampton: Man stabbed in the face.

Police say the 26 year old local man was stabbed in the face and stomach after an incident in Abington.

It happened near Collingwood Road around 8pm on Sunday after what's being described as an "incident."

The victim, a local man, is now in a serious condition in intensive care at Northampton General Hospital.

Collingwood Road itself was closed for several hours on the stretch between Cedar Road and Abington Avenue as forensic teams carried out an investigation.
