Derbyshire police say a man attacked near Derby Bus Station earlier today "suffered serious injuries" but is in a "stable condition".
They have also revealed that the incident happened between between Bass’ Recreation Ground and the River Gardens at 1.20pm.
A force statement said an altercation took place between "two men at the underpass".
Witness have told the Derby Telegraph that the injured man was young, white, with ginger hair and wearing a black puffer jacket. He had run into Derby Bus Station for help.
One of the people who went to his aid, Daniel Hickton, said the man said had been stabbed in the arm and was bleeding heavily.
A police cordon has been in place near the bridge and trails of blood could be seen on the ground from the bridge to the back entrance of the station.
Three police cars and an ambulance were parked outside the bus station front entrance throughout the afternoon but the bus station is open as usual.
One passer-by said at 2pm: "Just came through Derby Bus Station, blood everywhere and paramedics tending to a man on the floor.
"I'm guessing he's quite young by his clothes but I didn't see his face. Lots of people are around him. There was a trail of blood through the bus station and out of the back doors."
A man who was in the River Gardens shortly after the attack said he had heard the victim was stabbed in the arm.
He said: “He was sprinting his way to the bus station, which is where the blood has come from. I can’t believe this has happened. It’s awful.”
