A MAN suffered serious cuts to his face and a hand after a knife attack in Richmond, North Yorkshire.

Police are appealling for witnesses to the attack which is said to have taken place outside a Chinese takeaway, near the Talbot Inn on Sunday, January 13, at 8am.

A 22-year-old man from Richmond was taken to hospital and was treated before being released.

He is thought to have been involved in a row with another man which began in a flat in Market Place before the pair left and continued arguing outside the takeaway.

A 40-year-old local man has been arrested in connection with the incident and is currently in police custody.

Detective Sereant Graeme Bevington of Northallerton CID said: “Thankfully the injuries suffered by the victim were not as serious as they could have been.

“However, he will require further hospital treatment as an out-patient."

Anyone who witnessed the incident can call North Yorkshire Police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Graeme Bevington, or email graeme.bevington@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111 quoting reference number 12130006826.
