Police are appealing for witnesses following a stabbing incident in a park in Milton Keynes.

The appeal has been classified as an incident of wounding with intent to cause GBH, and took place on Friday (7/7) at Kents Hill Pavilion park, Firthwood Crescent at about 5.45pm.

The victim, a man aged 47, was involved in a dispute with a group of males. One of the group then stabbed the victim twice in the leg before running away from the scene.

The man sustained leg wounds which required hospital treatment, and has since been discharged.

The offender is a mixed race man, aged between 22 and 24. He has an average build and brown hair.

Investigating officer DS Adam Billingham said, “The victim asked this group of males to move, and as a result has ended up receiving two stab wounds and requiring hospital treatment.

“At the time of the incident, the park was busy with lots of members of the public present. Parents were also dropping off and collecting children from football training, so I am hopeful that someone will have witnessed this incident.

“If anyone has any details which could help our investigation, please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”

People with any information relating to this case are asked to call 101 quoting reference ‘43170200132’.
