Detectives are looking for three people after a stabbing in Holyhead during the Bank Holiday.
A man was nearing his Vauxhall Astra van parked by the public toilets on Penrhos Beach Road on Sunday night (26th August), when he was wounded by another man who approached him from behind.
Police were called out when the victim turned up at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley at around 8.55pm – he was later taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.
Detectives say they are keen to track down a red Ford Fiesta car used by the suspect and his two accomplices to flee the scene after the stabbing.
PC Debbie Moore from Llangefni CID said: ”We are appealing for any witnesses who noticed anything suspicious in the vicinity of the old public toilets by Penrhos Beach Road or adjoining area between 8pm and 8.45pm on Sunday to come forward.”
DCI Brian Kearney added: ”North West Wales remains one of the safest parts of the UK and we would appeal to our local community to come forward in confidence with any information on the identity of the attackers.”
”While incidents of this nature are rare, stabbing a person in an unprovoked attack is a cowardly act. We can only solve such knife related crimes with the full support and assistance of our community.”
Anyone with information about the stabbing should contact PC Moore at Llangefni CID on 101, quoting reference no. W121624, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
