Armed po­lice at­tended the en­trance to the ma­ter­nity and chil­dren’s units at Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal af­ter two peo­ple were stabbed in the street.

A teenager, who was re­ported to be 16, and a man in his 20s, both suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries af­ter the in­ci­dent in West­lake Av­enue, Hamp­ton Vale, near the Moorhen pub on Satur­day evening, with po­lice called at about 7.30pm.

One was taken by air am­bu­lance to Ad­den­brooke’s Hos­pi­tal in Cam­bridge and the other went to the city hos­pi­tal by him­self. Both were still be­lieved to be in hos­pi­tal last night.

Fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent po­lice cor­doned off the area around Domino’s Pizza.

Shortly af­ter, three men were ar­rested by armed po­lice af­ter they stopped a car at the junc­tion of Lin­coln Road and Oc­cu­pa­tion Road, but they were sub­se­quently re­leased with­out charge, and a po­lice spokes­woman con­firmed no fur­ther action would be taken against them.

Po­lice also raided a prop­erty in Sor­bus Close, Hamp­ton Har­gate, at 8.50pm on Sun­day, but no ar­rests were made.

The North West Anglia NHS Foun­da­tion Trust, which runs Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal, is­sued a state­ment af­ter armed po­lice vis­ited the site in Bret­ton fol­low­ing the stab­bings.

It said: “Thank you to the on-site teams for work­ing closely with Cam­bridgeshire Con­stab­u­lary who re­solved the sit­u­a­tion swiftly.

“Due to the po­si­tion of the po­lice teams near the women and chil­dren’s en­trance, we un­der­stand that this may have been of con­cern to our pa­tients, visi­tors and staff, and in par­tic­u­lar to par­ents of our youngest pa­tients.

“How­ever, we would like to offer our re­as­sur­ance that the chil­dren’s Ama­zon Ward or the Ma­ter­nity Unit were not in­volved in the in­ci­dent.”

De­tec­tives are ap­peal­ing for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call Peter­bor­ough CID quot­ing in­ci­dent 494 of July 29.

Al­ter­na­tively, peo­ple can con­tact Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555111.
