Man held after student knife attack in Wrexham

A 20-year-old man has been arrested after one student was stabbed and two others were attacked in "random assaults" in Wrexham, say police.

One man is being treated in hospital for stab wounds following the incident in the early hours at Crispin Lane while a woman received minor injuries.

Glyndwr University and police said they wanted to reassure the public it was an isolated incident.

A second woman was unharmed in the incident, say North Wales Police.

The injured man is being treated at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Ch Insp Neil Maxwell said: "Although the victims were all students at Glyndwr University, the assaults appear to be random at this stage and there is no apparent motive."

University spokesperson Lynda Powell said: "The university is working closely with North Wales Police, who have provided additional officers to reassure students and the local community that this was an isolated incident which is being thoroughly investigated."

Police appealed for witnesses to call officers on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
