POLICE have launched an investigation after a man was stabbed in Gosport last night.

Officers were called to Mill Pond Road at about 10pm, after a 41-year-old man was assaulted by two men.

The victim – who is said to be in a serious but stable condition – was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, to receive treatment for three stab injuries to his thigh.

One resident rushed to help the man after the victim stumbled into their front door in an attempt to find help.

Wishing to remain anonymous, the resident, who is trained in first aid, said: ‘I heard him screaming for help, he was losing a lot of blood.

‘After I saw him I grabbed my first aid kit and dialled 999 – I stayed with him for about 45 minutes.

‘He was in a very bad way, he went into shock and was going in and out of consciousness.’

It is believed the two men left the scene in a silver vehicle.

Anyone who saw the two men or the vehicle in the area should contact Det Con Paul Stenton at Fratton Police Station by calling 101 and quoting 44170253104, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously. In an emergency always dial 999.
