A man has been stabbed by men armed with machetes in what police say was a "targeted" attack.


The 31-year-old was attacked by two men as he was getting out of his car on Aberfield Gardens, Belle Isle, at about 18:30 on Wednesday 15 January.

The victim was treated in hospital and later released.

Det Con Richard Hodson said: “This was a very violent attack that could easily have had more serious consequences for the victim.
