“While the injuries sustained are not life-threatening, whenever a knife is used there is always potential for far more dangerous consequences and we will always take swift and robust action against weapon related crime.

“Our colleagues from the crime scene investigation team are working to establish the facts and we are currently in the early stages of our enquires.

“We are now appealing for anyone who may have seen or heard something in the area at that time to come forward with any detail that may help our investigation.
