A man stabbed in the neck in Milnsbridge is recovering in hospital.

Emergency services were called to Armitage Road in Milnsbridge at just before noon on Saturday to reports that a man had been attacked.

The Examiner understands there was some kind of party or small gathering at a terraced house on the street when an argument broke out.

The dispute spilled out into the street and the victim – a 21-year-old man – suffered what are believed to be puncture wounds to his neck. Police have declined to say what kind of weapon was used.

Paramedics were called and Yorkshire Ambulance Service alerted police.

The victim, his clothes covered in blood, was seen walking from a road ambulance to the air ambulance, though he was unsteady on his feet.

He was flown to Leeds General Infirmary where he is recovering. His injuries were not said to be life threatening.

Police said he had been under sedation and had not been interviewed fully.

Richard Poulain, a driver and office manager at Stotts Coaches, told the Examiner the yard was one of the few places the helicopter could have landed.

It was fortunate he was in the office doing some paperwork before heading to Manchester Airport to collect the Huddersfield Town squad returning from a pre-season tour to Austria. Normally the gates would be locked on Saturday afternoon.

Det Insp Paul Savage, of Kirklees CID, said the victim was still under treatment in hospital.

Officers want to speak to a suspect but no arrests have been made.
