Police have arrested two men after a stabbing outside a gym in Salford last night.
Just before 7.10pm yesterday evening (8 June 2021), officers were called to a report of stabbing at Regents Park on Ordsall Lane.
Emergency services attended and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital where he remains with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Detectives from Salford CID are investigating and enquiries so far suggest the victim was involved in an altercation with four men who had got out of a black Seat Leon and assaulted him.
The Seat was later traced to an address in the Moss Side area and seized.
Two men - aged 18 and 19 - were later detained and taken to custody for questioning on suspicion of section 18 assault.
Investigators are appealing for witnesses and anyone in the area who may have any dash cam footage around the time of the attack to come forward.
Detective Inspector Thomas Willis, of GMP Salford's Swinton CID, said: "Our officers have been working beyond the evening and into the early hours to try and ascertain further information about this incident, and we have been able to make two arrests.
"We are still making extensive enquiries and are continuing to urge members of the public to make contact with us to provide us with any accounts of what they saw yesterday evening, as we know there will have been many people in the area.
"If you have a dash cam please check for any footage that may include the incident itself or features a black Seat Leon with a 64 plate that may have been in the area at the time.
