Just over a week since a serious assault in Salisbury in which a man was stabbed in the groin, police are 'urgently' asking witnesses to get in touch with them.

A 36 year old man was attacked was Estcourt Road at around 5.00pm on Saturday March 11th.

30 year old Harry Edwards from Gainsborough Close has been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and GBH with intent in connection with this incident.

Police are now renewing their call for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Constable Eirin Martin, of South CID, said:

"We believe there were a number of people in the area around the same time as this incident who would have witnessed what happened. We urgently need to speak to these people. The information they hold, no matter how small, could be really crucial to our investigation."

The victim's injuries were described as serious at the time and he needed hospital treatment.

He managed to get himself to the Bourne Hill police station to get help, so officers would like to hear from anyone who saw him on that journey too.

If you can help, you can contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
