Man arrested following stabbing in Wallasey

Police are appealing for information after a man was arrested following a stabbing in Wallasey in the early hours of Sunday, 4 February.

Shortly before 1am, it was reported that a 19-year-old man had been stabbed outside Ashville Football Club on Cross Lane.

Emergency services attended and took the victim to hospital for slash wounds to his arm and abdomen which are not life-threatening.

A 21-year-old man from Woodchurch has been arrested on suspicion of Section 18 wounding with intent, affray, and possession of a bladed article. He is still in police custody to be questioned.

An investigation is underway with CCTV and witness enquiries being carried out in the local area, and detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Inspector Sam Davies said, “Although a man has been arrested, we are still appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to please get in touch.

“We are aware that there were two separate parties taking place at the two venues – Ashville Football Club and at Wallasey Rugby Club, both off Cross Lane.

“We also understand that the assault took place on Cross Lane shortly after both functions had finished, and that a number of people attending both venues may have witnessed the stabbing take place.

“If you witnessed the disturbance or the stabbing or were driving past the area and have dashcam footage, then please get in touch as it could be vital to our enquiries.”
