On Tuesday, 10 January 2023, at around 4:25pm, GMP officers responded to reports of a stabbing at an Aldi car park on Heywood Way in Salford. A 62-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He remains in hospital receiving medical treatment.
Salford detectives have this morning, 12 January, arrested three in connection with the incident: a 42 year woman, a 20 year man and a 17 year old man. They have all been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and the attempted murder of the victim.
GMP continues to appeal to members of the public to come forward if they believe they may have any information about this incident.
Detective Superintendent Ryan Davies of GMP’s Salford District said: “Whilst we have arrested three persons, the investigation remains in its early stages and we are keeping an open mind. Our investigations to date have not found any evidence to suggest that the victim was robbed or that theft was the motive for this attack.
“Our assessment remains that the victim was purposely followed and targeted. On that basis, we do not currently believe there is any wider risk to the community.
“We have a team of detectives dedicated to investigating numerous lines of enquiry in an effort to establish the motive and bring any offenders to justice.
“Uniformed and detective officers continue to patrol the local area, carrying out further enquiries and providing reassurance to the local community.

“I am again requesting that anyone who may have CCTV footage on their nearby premises; or who was in the area at the time and has dashcam footage; or who filmed the incident, should please contact us or submit such footage to our dedicated online portal.
