Knifeman still at large after stabbing at Shelton Halloween party


A man stabbed at a student Halloween party in Stoke-on-Trent has been released from hospital.

The victim suffered stab wounds to his back, left forearm and lacerations to his neck.

Police were called to Seaford Street in Shelton just before midnight on October 31, where a party organised by the university’s Afro-Caribbean Society (ACS) was taking place.

A Staffordshire University student, who was at the party but wished to remain anonymous, said: “I didn’t see the stabbing but some people ran outside saying there was a fight and then next thing I was told was that there was a stabbing.

“The guy who got stabbed wouldn’t stay so him and his mates went off.

“We tried to get him to stay but he was having none of it.”

A spokesperson for Staffordshire Student Union said: “We have been advised of an incident in Shelton on Tuesday night and are currently looking into this with the University.

“Staffordshire University Students’ Union does not condone any type of anti-social behaviour and works closely with community partners to ensure our community is a safe place for all its residents.”

Staffordshire Police confirmed the offender is still at large and investigations are ongoing.
