More from witness

One resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “I could hear shouting, one of them said ‘it’s in my f****** hand’ and the other something like ‘don’t f****** stab me’ and then it all went quiet.”

The woman said she then left to pick up her child and when she returned there were about eight police vehicles blocking Royd Street.
She added: “I then saw three police bring one man out and put him in the van.

“It’s shocking. The kids were playing on the cricket field just around the corner and they were told to go home.

“The corner shop is closed but I’m not sure if that’s because the injured man ran for help.

“I wish I’d done more but I didn’t know what was going on and then it all went quiet, so I just thought it had calmed down. I hope he’s not badly injured.”

Witness said they heard somebody shout: “What have you got in your hand, don’t stab me with that.”
