Detectives from Staines CID are appealing for witnesses after a man in his 20s suffered an arm injury in Egham.
Officers were called to Egham Hill at around 1.30am on Thursday, 12 February after the man said he was walking down the hill, near to the bus stop, when he was approached from the side. It is believed the man was then stabbed with a knife.
An ambulance first responder attended the scene and advised the injury required hospital treatment. Officers then took the victim to St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey where the wound was treated.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Jamie Spooner, said: “Although we are in the early stages of this investigation and currently still establishing the full facts surrounding the incident I believe there would have been people in the area who will be able to assist our investigation.
“I would ask anyone who either saw something suspicious or witnessed any part of this incident to come forward and speak with officers. If you would like to provide information anonymously this can be done through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Detectives and uniformed officers from the Runnymede Safer Neighbourhood Team are making a number of enquiries and reassurance visits in the area.
Anyone who can assist with the investigation is urged to contact Surrey Police quoting reference 45150011928.
