A MAN has been stabbed outside a McDonald’s today – as three others have been arrested over the attack.
A 32-year-old man was knifed in Lower Briggate in the Leeds city centre at around 2.30am after a fight, cops said.
The man was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment, and he is in a stable condition.
Three men aged 18, 19 and 24 have been arrested in connection with the stabbing and are in custody.
Detective Inspector James Entwistle, of Leeds District CID, said: “The victim has received very serious injuries and it’s quite apparent that this could have had far more serious consequences for him.
“Although our enquiries remain at an early stage, this appears to have been an unprovoked attack arising from a dispute in the street.
“It’s clear from CCTV that there are several people in the area at the time of incident and we are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed any aspect of it to help us build up a full picture of what occurred.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13210421525 or online.
