Drug dealer accused in shooting tells jury he blames ‘five other gangs’

Have your say

TWO men have been arrested after a man was stabbed at a McDonald’s.

The victim was attacked at the Pompey Centre branch in Fratton.

He suffered stab wounds which police said were not life-threatening.

A 20-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of theft, wounding with intent and assault in connection with the attack, which happened at 10pm on July 3.

The 20-year-old was also held on suspicion of possessing a class B drug.

Both men were released on bail until August 20.

The attack is being treated as an isolated incident by police.

It is not clear whether the attack happened inside or outside the restaurant.

Detectives are not linking it to the Operation Bedham investigation into three assaults on lone women in the north of Portsmouth in recent weeks.

A 17-year-old boy charged with three counts of attempted murder in relation to the attacks appeared at Fareham Youth Court earlier this week.

The teenager was remanded in custody.
