Victim was alerted after his front window was smashed

A man in his 30s was knocked to the ground and twice stabbed in the knee during a nasty attack in Batley.

Police were called following a dispute which broke out outside the man’s home in Summerbridge Close at 9.30pm on Tuesday night.

A short time earlier the 31-year-old Asian man had been alerted when he had his front windows smashed and went out to confront the suspects.

But he was set upon and suffered injuries to his head and two puncture wounds to his left knee.

He was treated in hospital but has since been released.

The attack lasted around 10 minutes.

The first suspect is described as a white male, 6ft, slim build with short shaved blonde hair. The second suspect is a black male, 6ft, muscular build, and dark brown spiky hair. No description has been given of the third suspect.
