Police in Bradford are appealing for help in tracing the occupants of a vehicle who spoke to a man shortly after he was stabbed.

The conversation took place after a 24 year old local man was stabbed in the neck at an address on Fieldhurst Court, Bierley, Bradford, between Friday (March 28) night and Saturday (March 29) morning.

The victim left the address and made his way on foot on Rooley Lane towards the Barkerend area.

“I would appeal to anyone who believes they may be able to assist the investigation to make contact on 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
