THIS is the man police believe was involved in a stabbing in Huddersfield.

And detectives hope the CCTV images they are releasing today will help them find him.

I am appealing for people to contact us with information that could help us find this man we suspect of being involved in the stabbing in the town centre in May of this year.

I would also make a plea directly to the man himself: Come forward now and talk to us.

The incident happened at 4.30am on the morning of Thursday, May 19, when an 18-year old man was stabbed at the GT Taxis office on Lord Street in Huddersfield.

The young man, who had been out for the evening in Huddersfield, was waiting for a taxi when he was approached by a group of men who chased him into a back office of GT Taxis.

Once in the back office, the victim was stabbed in his stomach.

The suspects ran from the taxi office and left the scene in a Ford people carrier. Fortunately, the 18-year old’s injuries were not life-threatening and he was allowed home after hospital treatment, but this could easily have been an even more serious crime.

As a result of an extensive investigation into the incident, carried out by Huddersfield CID, we have been able to arrest and charge four people with wounding.

They are currently going through the courts.

However, one possible suspect has so far been able to evade detection so we are turning to the public for help in catching him.

The man in the images we are releasing today is someone we need to speak to so I am appealing to the public for information.

Anyone with any information should contact Huddersfield CID via 0845 6060606 or Crimestoppers anonymously and in confidence on 0800 555 111.
