Breaking: There was an assault in Leazes Park last night

The victim was approached around 10pm

A student was assaulted in Leazes Park last night.

The assault happened at 10pm, when a man was walking through the Park with a group of friends.

One eye witness claims there was a knife involved, however this is yet to be confirmed.

The incident was reported to Northumbria Police around one hour ago, so an officer is yet to be allocated to the case.

Last night, a student posted in the Official Castle Leazes Accommodation Group 2018 that his friend had been stabbed in the park and was in A&E.

This was posted at around 11:30pm last night

Northumbria Police have said that he is in a stable condition in hospital.

Northumbria Police told The Newcastle Tab: "There was an incident at 10pm last night which was reported to the police an hour ago.

"Reports say that a knife may have been involved, but this is yet to be confirmed.

"The person injured was in company of friends."

The Newcastle Tab believe the victim of this incident was a Newcastle University student. We are investigating this further.

The Newcastle Tab will update this story with more information as it comes through.
