FOUR men arrested after two men were stabbed have been told they face no action.

The victims were attacked in Alhambra Road, Southsea, on September 15, in a drug-related incident.

A 51-year-old man, of Alhambra Road, and a 20-year-old man, of no fixed address, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Another 20-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of affray and being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Police said an 18-year-old man, of Floyer Road, in Birmingham, was also arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

The four men returned bail on Monday and were told they face no action.

At the time a witness told The News he saw a young man on the steps of one of the shared houses.

He said: ‘It was pretty horrific. The guy was stabbed badly.’

The street was shut for around four hours and was one in a spate of stabbings in the city in September.
