Man Stabbed To Death In Manchester

Greater Manchester Police has confirmed a man has been stabbed to death and another has been injured following an attack in the city.

Both men, who are believed to be in their 20s, were found by emergency crews on Parry Road in Longsight, shortly after 00:40am this morning (Thursday).

Both men were taken to hospital, but one man, thought to be aged 25, later died from his injuries. The second man, who is believed to be 23, is receiving treatment in hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A police cordon is now in place on Parry Road, Rushford Street and Prout Street while an investigation is carried out.

Detective Superintendent Jon Chadwick said: ""This investigation is only a few hours old so we are very much in the early stages of establishing exactly what has happened and the events leading up to this man's death.

"We have not yet identified who this man is so the main focus of our inquiries are to establish who he is, make contact with any family members and build up an accurate picture of what has led to his death.

"What we do know is that some sort of altercation took place that has resulted in two men being stabbed, one of whom has now died.

"I understand this will cause shock and distress in the community so I want to assure people that we will have a large police presence in the area in the coming days and I would urge anyone with concerns to speak to an officer."

He added for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

They are asked to contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
