Following the murder of a 20-year-old man on Claremont Road in Moss Side in the early hours of Monday 15th August 2022, and the subsequent serious assaults that occurred nearby, investigations have determined that these incidents are unrelated.
Detective Superintendent David Meeney said: “Of the four assaults that were reported whereby males have received stab injuries, it has now been established that these are three unrelated incidents.
"Two incidents took place outside of the Moss Side area and are subsequently being investigated by our colleagues on other districts and one incident took place on Roseberry Street, Moss Side. Fortunately, all those who suffered injuries in relation to these incidents have been released from hospital.
“Four suspects have been arrested linked to these assaults and have been bailed whilst investigations are ongoing. We will continue to have an increased presence in Moss Side as we follow all lines of enquiry regarding these incidents.”
