Police in Gloucester are continuing to ask for witnesses to come forward, after a man was found stabbed in broad daylight.

Police say the 47-year-old man from the city, who has no fixed address, was found injured on Tredworth High Street shortly before 2.40pm on Saturday, May 17th. 

He has been receiving treatment to wounds to his leg and chest at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and was due to be discharged on Monday. 

Experts are carrying on their forensic investigations, while detectives continue to appeal for further witnesses to get in touch. 

Detective Inspector Angela Middlewood said:

"It's really important anyone with information comes forward, even if it is anonymously via Crimestoppers. 

"A stabbing is always shocking but I would like to reassure the community that we believe the incident was related to a criminal feud and not a stranger attack."

Gloucester Chief Inspector Andy Kilmurray added: 

"Our officers have visited people in the area to ask for their assistance and give them reassurance. 

"If anyone has concerns or wants to raise any issues we would urge them to make contact with the team via 101 or the website. 

"We remain determined to ensure everyone realises that carrying a knife is completely unacceptable." 

A 48-year-old man from Gloucester has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, while a 50-year-old man has been bailed in connection with the investigation. 

Witnesses are asked to call 101 and quote incident 288 of May 17th.
