DETECTIVES investigating a stabbing outside Colchester’s Liquid nightclub are appealing for witnesses.

A 27-year-old man was found with a stab wound outside the High Street club at about 3.30am on Friday, June 27.

He is in a stable condition at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

Investigating officer Detective Alison Cotter said: “A lot of people would have been leaving the nightclub at the time this happened and I am sure there must be other witnesses to what happened who we have not yet spoken to.

“If you were on Colchester High Street in the early hours of last Friday and saw what happened I would urge you to get in touch with me by calling Colchester Police Station on 101 or ringing Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

A 21-year-old man from Middlesex, a 19-year-old man from Brentwood, a 23-year-old man from Colchester and a 37-year-old woman from Colchester were arrested at the scene.

They are on police bail until October 7 pending further enquiries.
