Detectives are appealing for witnesses after the man was badly injured.

The incident is thought to have happened at around 2.20am on Sunday, August 13 on Garsdale Road, Brookfield.

The 27 year old man was found by police with a stab wound to his abdomen after a member of the public nearby rang 999 and called for an ambulance.

DS Jerry Sturgess of Preston CID said: “We believe that there may have been an altercation between males in the Garsdale Road area. We would urge anyone who saw any of the incident or has any information that could assist with our enquiries to come forward. Luckily the victim has not suffered more serious injuries as the consequences could easily have been significantly worse"
