A man is in a serious condition in hospital after being stabbed by three men wearing balaclavas in Plymouth.

It happened in Cromer Walk on Friday night. 

Detective Inspector Paul Weymouth said: “It’s believed that the victim was travelling as the passenger in a grey ford Focus, which was followed by a dark BMW and a silver Ford.

“As he has exited the vehicle on Langley Crescent, a group of three men wearing balaclavas, have assaulted him and attacked him with a bladed weapon.

“The victim was stabbed multiple times causing serious injuries to the abdomen. He was taken by land ambulance to Derriford hospital to receive urgent treatment for his injuries; where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

“I want to urge anyone who either saw the incident, the cars involved, or has any information about the incident to get in touch with police.”
