We are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in Wellington.

Officers were called to Longforth Road and Victoria Street, known locally as Roly Poly Green, at around 2.15am today (Monday 29 May) after a man had been stabbed.

The victim, in his 30s, has been taken to hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or life changing.

We are treating this as an isolated incident and enquiries are ongoing.

If you were in the area around the time of the incident and saw anything, or have any relevant CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage which could aid the investigation, please call us.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5223125056, or complete our online appeals form.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
