Rugby: Man suffers stab wound during disorder in Brownsover

A man suffered a stab wound during disorder in the Brownsover area of Rugby earlier this evening.

At 7.13pm, police were called to a report of a large group of people fighting with weapons on Hollowell Way.

The 20-year-old man suffered a stab wound to his abdomen and is in a stable condition in hospital

An 18-year-old man from Rugby has been arrested on suspicion of assault.

The area around where the incident occurred remains cordoned off.

Inspector Michael Huntley said: "This was large scale disorder in daylight in a residential area. It will have undoubtedly been shocking for anyone who witnessed it.

"Fortunately, nobody was more seriously injured and we will be working hard over night to identify the others involved and bring them in for questioning.

"If anyone can help us to identify other people involved I would urge them to call 101 quoting incident 355 of 14 May 2018.

"Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
