A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after a man was left with life-changing injuries following a stabbing.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said officers were called after 5.30pm on Thursday to reports of a disturbance between a group of young men at Kenyon Way, Worsley, where a man was stabbed.

The force said a man was taken to hospital with serious injuries which are believed to be life-changing.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault and remains in police custody for questioning.

Initial enquiries suggest this is an isolated incident with no wider risk to the public but a scene will remain in place overnight whilst officers continue with their investigation.

“Extra officers have been deployed to the area to reassure the community. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to them, they are there to support you.

“I would urge members of the public who witnessed anything to please come forward and report this information to us. No matter how small the information may seem, it could prove vital to the investigation.”
