Man rushed to hospital after another stabbing suspected in Fallowfield

Four men have been arrested in connection with the incident

A man was rushed to hospital this morning after a suspected stabbing took place in Fallowfield, the second in two days.

Emergency services were called to a home on Derby Road at 9:18am after a “disturbance” was reported. A group of males were found inside the property fighting, police said.

One victim had a puncture wound to the stomach and a laceration wound to the head. He was taken to hospital but the injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A knife was found inside the property and four men have been arrested on suspicion of GBH.


The road is currently cordoned off near the junction by Exbury Street as crime scene investigators remain examining the area.

Students this morning witnessed the emergency services arriving and one reported that the incident was very shocking, telling The Tab Manchester: “Police were putting up tape and police cars were still pulling up. One boy was surrounded by police but I think they’d already taken the victim to hospital.”

This comes after a 19 year old Manchester Metropolitan University student was stabbed to death in Fallowfield yesterday, though there is no suggestion the two incidents are linked.

Greater Manchester Police said: “Investigations are currently ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact Greater Manchester Police Greater Manchester Police can be contacted via or 101. Information can also be shared anonymously via the independent charity – Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
