Three suspects have been arrested, and enquiries are ongoing into the incident.

  • At 4.40am today, Friday 3 January 2020, police received a report that a man had been stabbed on Station Parade, opposite the Train Station
  • Officers attended, and located a man with injuries including cuts to his face, back and leg
  • The victim, a local man in his 30s, was taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries which will require surgery
  • Officers responded to the incident immediately, and at 5.20am two teenage boys, aged 16 and 15, were stopped and arrested on Skipton Road. A third boy, aged 13, was arrested a few minutes later

All three have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. They remain in custody at this time, while enquiries into the incident continue.

Superintendent Steve Thomas, Harrogate Commander, said:

This is clearly an extremely serious incident, and residents will naturally feel concerned about what has happened. However, incidents like this are very rare in our town. Thanks to a fast response local officers last night, three suspects have been arrested, and a police investigation is well underway.

You can expect to see increased patrols in the town centre in the coming days – officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be in the area to provide extra reassurance to residents and businesses. Please do speak to them if you have any concerns. It goes without saying that the carrying of knives and other weapons is unacceptable and these additional patrols will be using appropriate stop and search powers to ensure anyone found in possession of weapons is arrested and put before the courts




 

Anyone with any information about the incident or anyone who witnessed the attack should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting reference 12200001239.

  1. Please do not let these boys be spared a criminal record due to their age. They should have been at home in bed not playing out with knives.

  2. I was Slashed on the Train by a large group just like these
    Feral Boys they cut my clothes and leather belt off .
    The Doctors told me it would of been a different story if i hadn’t had a thick leather belt on .
    Even though the culprit was identified later by me .the police said i needed a whiteness. so no charges were made. i still live with the consequences to this day.
    i had been informed that the culprit had committed many such offenses. what has happened to the British Police ?
