A MAN was stabbed several times at a block of flats in Merseyside.
Two men were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the attack on the 38-year-old in Wallasey.
Officers were called to Seabank Road just after 11pm on Wednesday following reports that a man from Wallasey had been stabbed several times.
He was taken to hospital and was being treated for injuries that are described by police as serious, but are not thought to be life threatening at this time.
Neighbours said they were shocked when police arrived at the building late on Wednesday, with several police cars and vans.
One man described how officers appeared to be using a dog to search through nearby shrubbery, while another said police remained until the early hours photographing the scene.
Yesterday it remained sealed off with tape with police on guard outside and officers from the scientific support unit on the scene. A neighbour said: “They were here for quite a few hours afterwards, and back again today.”
Another neighbour said: “It is very shocking. You don’t usually see many people there, one or two men seem to come and go from the flats, but they always seemed to keep themselves to themselves.”
She said she often saw cars coming and going from the flats and a lot of taxis, but had not been aware of any trouble there before.
Today police said the men arrested, a 27-year-old from Wallasey and a 22-year-old from Birkenhead, were taken to a police station where they were being interviewed by officers.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information which could help the investigation is asked to call detectives on 777 2265 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
