TWO men were stabbed after masked robbers entered a property in the early hours of last Sunday morning.

At 3.50am, a group of masked men entered a property on Twibell Street, and allegedly attacked a 34 year-old man and a 32-year-old man with a knife.

The two men were taken to hospital and when police arrived at the property a cannabis set up was discovered.

The 34-year-old man has been released from hospital and arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis. He has been released under investigation.

The 32-year-old man is still in hospital awaiting surgery.

A police spokesman said: “Officers are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the group of men entering the property or the white Ford Transit or Mercedes Sprinter-style panel van they are believed to have used.

“Our enquiries are ongoing. Please call 101 quoting crime number 14/31151/20.”
