Original release, 23 June
Officers are on scene in Lincoln city centre today as they carry out investigations into a serious assault which has left a man with a suspected stab wound.
We were called to reports that a fight had broken out in the car park at the rear of the Treaty of Commerce pub just south of the train barriers in High Street at around 3.30pm yesterday (Thursday, 22 June). It is believed that several people were gathered in the area when the disagreement broke out, and that those involved were known to each other. We do not believe there is a wider threat to the public.
On arrival, officers found a man in his 30s with a serious injury requiring medical attention and gave assistance until paramedics arrived. He was treated at the scene before being airlifted to hospital where he remains in a stable condition. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
Officers immediately conducted searches of the local area and other enquiries to establish the circumstances of the incident. Following swift investigations, we arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and he remains in police custody. We also arrested a 22-year-old man and a 34-year-old man on suspicion of the same offence. They have been released on police bail with conditions not to enter Albion Yard or contact the victim.
We believe that there was a fourth person involved in the incident who we are actively attempting to identify.
We will remain in the local area for the next few days while we carry out enquiries.
We are now asking for help from the local community. This incident took place in the middle of the afternoon in a busy area surrounding by accommodation blocks and businesses, as well as passing pedestrians and vehicles, and we believe that there will be people who have information who we will not yet have spoken with.
We are asking for anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or saw a group of people in that area in the time leading up to the incident to get in touch. We are particularly keen to view any CCTV, mobile phone or dashcam footage between 3pm and 3.45pm in the High Street area close to the train barriers and the surrounding streets.
If you can help, there are a number of ways to get in touch:
