Police are investigating a possible stabbing in Allenton which happened in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Police say a 33-year-old man suffered a wound to his stomach after he was attacked in the Addison Road area of Allenton at 5am.

Paramedics from East Midlands Ambulance Service contacted police to say they treated a man who looked like he had been stabbed.

His injuries are not life-threatening and he has been discharged from hospital.

A spokesman for Derbyshire police said: "Witnesses or anyone with information should call DC Kelly Edwards on 101, quoting reference 17000529201. Alternatively, send her a message online by visiting the contact us section of our website. You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

It comes after a teenage boy was taken to hospital after being reportedly stabbed in a separate incident in Alvaston last night. Police say the 15-year-old was riding along a jitty that leads from a canal path to Avonmouth Drive at 6pm when he felt a blow to his back.

Officers say the two attacks are not linked.
