After an argument, a man in his twenties was stabbed on the street in broad daylight in Southampton.

Following allegations of a dispute on a Southampton street, a man was stabbed in broad daylight.

At around 1.40pm yesterday, police were called to complaints of a brawl between two men on Bridge Road in Southampton. A stab wound to the stomach injured one of the males, who is thought to be in his mid-twenties.

According to the Southern Daily Echo, the other man has departed the scene.

The males are believed to know each other, thus detectives are treating it as an isolated occurrence.

Yesterday afternoon, residents reported a large police presence in the area.

Following the event, police blocked off the roads and pathways in Woolston.

An air ambulance is said to have landed next to a church, according to sources.

Separately, it comes after a Southampton resident was sent to a psychiatric facility indefinitely after stabbing a police officer four times.

Timothy Walsh’s flat in Southampton was visited by police in October for a welfare check.

Mr Walsh lunged at the cops, brandishing a knife, stabbing one in the neck three times and once in the arm.

Mr Walsh was convicted guilty of causing grievous bodily harm during his trial last week and was committed to a psychiatric facility indefinitely.

In February, a man was sentenced to prison for stabbing a teenager in Thornhill, Southampton.

Leighton Tabone, 21, admitted to causing serious bodily harm and having a bladed article in a public place.

One of the 16-year-old males had minor injuries to his arm during the assault.

Another victim, now 18 years old, was stabbed in the hand.

Tabone was given an 18-month sentence.

A 17-year-old man died of a single stab wound to the chest in January of last year.

While the events that led to his death could not have been predicted, an investigation released last month indicated that more could have been done to help him.

“Professional curiosity in his very early years, may have provided professionals opportunities to impact Liam’s life course,” Dr Russell Wate wrote in the Southampton Safeguarding Children Partnership report.

“It appears that sufficient help was not provided, as it should have been and most likely will be now.

“What we’ve learned is that there should have been more done earlier in Liam’s childhood to deal with the cumulative effect of.”Brinkwire Summary News.”
