UPDATED: Man stabbed in Colchester

Gazette: Police cordon off alleyway in Colchester Police cordon off alleyway in Colchester

A MAN has been stabbed in Colchester.

Police cordoned off an alleyway at the back of the Cowdray Centre, in Cowdray Avenue, after a 21-year-old man was stabbed in the leg last night.

Police and ambulance were called to the scene at 11.20pm.

Police officers have said it is “highly unlikely” that this incident is related to the murders in Colchester.

The man was taken to Colchester General Hospital where he was treated for three minor leg injuries.

He has since left hospital.

The attackers were two men.

The first was black and thought to be in his late teens or early 20s. He was of average build and wearing a black padded coat and a black hoodie.

The second man was white, of average build and wearing a jumper.

The cordon was lifted at about 9.30am this morning.

Police investigating the stabbing are asking anyone with information to contact Colchester CID on 101, or anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Hopefully the animals that did it get caught.

I am wondering why people are wandering down alleys at night though, I wouldn't even dream of doing that with all the stuff happening lately.

Colchester - the mugging and stabbing capital of the UK!! Dangerous place to live now and keeps getting more and more negative press coverage. What are the law enforcement establishments doing about it? Ask yourself that question? Do you feel safe in Colchester?

Ozzie the blame lays with quite a few organisations.
Yes the police for not increasing the stop and searching.

The council for allowing this town to becoming a social problem dumping ground and happily letting it rot and do nothing but blame ECC .

The public for turning a blind eye and not becoming united that their is a huge anti social behaviour problem with this town.

Our MP for not bothering about us. Just look at his work in parliament this week asking for CCTV in slaughterhouses not why CBC and ECC have allowed Colchester's CCTV failed to help two major murder investigations. The ceasefire in Burma and war crimes in Gaza. When his own constituents are dying on the streets of Colchester. The benefits of a HS 2 link to Colchester not Colchester has no infrastructure to support an HS 2 link.

No I don't feel safe but hey the daily mail said this town is one of the few cheap places to live if you want to commute to London.

1120pm so the lights would have been on. Same case as the girl in greenstead stabbed in broad day light. Blaming the lighting is the wrong approach.
We need more police, not after people have been stabbed to death but daily.
Also the council should take a large portion of blame for letting us become the London boroughs dumping ground for their unwanted.

The police presence in Colchester does seem to have diminished somewhat during the last couple of weeks.

It appears that we have been left to our own devices, how many more people are going to get hurt or worse.

An MP is meant to deal with matters of national and international importance. The criminal slaughter being carried out by Israel in Gaza is far graver than anything that is happening here in Colchester, so it is quite right that our MP devotes attention to that.
.
And the reason Colchester and Clacton have become social dumping grounds is that with the Bedroom Tax and other changes to benefits, the government and London councils are driving people out so that social housing can be sold to speculators and buy-to-let landlords. So blame the Tory government (aided and abetted by the Lib Dems, including Bob Russell) for this phenomenon.

As our MP Bob should be more aware of public opinion. We have seen two very serious frenzied knife attacks in recent months and the sad death of Jay Whiston, as well as many other knife related crimes, in this borough.

Bob Russell has not explained why he won't support stiffer penalties for knife and knife carrying crimes!

The problem is that bob's vote against raising the deterrent part of knife crime law during this terrible time, was at best I'll judged, or worse, he holds flawed lib dem policy above sense. Whatever his reason, both he and the lib dem's credibility is shattered in Colchester. If he had at least had the balls to explain himself to us, he might have come out a little better off.

Same victim gets attacked again in town this week and gets arrested as an attacker but the thugs that did it didn't even get lifted? Victim held in police station for 12 hours before being released! Is it any wonder there are continual attacks because it's only the innocent that appear to have to answer for anything that happens here.

As our MP Bob should be more aware of public opinion. We have seen two very serious frenzied knife attacks in recent months and the sad death of Jay Whiston, as well as many other knife related crimes, in this borough.

Bob Russell has not explained why he won't support stiffer penalties for knife and knife carrying crimes!
Because he is a Liberal. A member of the mammy pamby party that sits on the fence as the bottom feeders take over Colchester. This town is really falling apart structurally and socially and he does not a thing. If he was in the private sector as a manager he would have sacked by now however the local dullards still vote this excuse for a man in time after time after time.

Hi Boris, the chap I know started Monday and he had hoped it might have persuaded the slippery fish in ECC to turn the lights back on.

Just reading through those accounts gives the impression he must have met people who have expressed their worries over knife crime. You should get yourself along to one of these events and you can then express yourself to him, in front of other local electors. Just a thought.[/p][/quote]Hi Boris, the chap I know started Monday and he had hoped it might have persuaded the slippery fish in ECC to turn the lights back on. In fact my friend's road lights were on all of Monday night/Tuesday - he believes it was a cynical move by the Bass to trick my friend into cancelling the event! But look on....... Angry of Lexden

Mr Dawson it is very obvious that you know ZERO about homicide investigations.Some are solved at once, some may take years, some are never solved which I sincerely hope is not the case in these two brutal cases. It's not a case of bad police work,.crooked copd, as you say, it's a case of sifting through evidence and making sure you have the right evidence and then, making sure you have the right suspect. Then the Prosecution must make sure the evidence sticks. Sound easy? It sure isn't and is this instance you have two brutalities that as of yet no one knows if they.are.connected. I suggest you go to the library and do research on what it takes to be a.good homicide detective.Not as easy as you think.Everyone in Colchester wants both of these cases.solved...

"The second man was white, of average build and wearing a jumper." I guess someone wearing a jumper would stand out in this current hot spell, even at night.

Those who are blaming the police Re being rather narrow minded,

There is roughly a population of nearly 180000 in Colchester, non inclusive of the university, there is a police force of between 100-150 in Colchester.

Now given that police work shift as we can't expect every officer on at once you are looking at ridiculous population to police ratio. If each police was to stop and search, say quickest it can be dealt with is 10 minutes you are still going to have the same level if crimes.

Simple solution!!!!
If you get caught with a knife or other weapon, instant 5 years without any question.
The fact is you conceal the weapon, therefore you know it is wrong, excuse of using it to protect yourself is ridiculous.
Man enough to carry, then you should be man enough to take the punishment, 5 years for concealing 10 years for brandishing 20 years for using, 35 years for killing . That might make the tough hard men think before they carry.

Ozzie the blame lays with quite a few organisations. Yes the police for not increasing the stop and searching. The council for allowing this town to becoming a social problem dumping ground and happily letting it rot and do nothing but blame ECC . The public for turning a blind eye and not becoming united that their is a huge anti social behaviour problem with this town. Our MP for not bothering about us. Just look at his work in parliament this week asking for CCTV in slaughterhouses not why CBC and ECC have allowed Colchester's CCTV failed to help two major murder investigations. The ceasefire in Burma and war crimes in Gaza. When his own constituents are dying on the streets of Colchester. The benefits of a HS 2 link to Colchester not Colchester has no infrastructure to support an HS 2 link. No I don't feel safe but hey the daily mail said this town is one of the few cheap places to live if you want to commute to London.
