Police have released a description of a man after two men were stabbed in St Albans last week.

A man forced his way into a flat in Lycaste Close and on Thursday, April 10 at around 5.45pm and had an altercation with the men, which resulted in them being stabbed.

A 20 year old received injuries to his chest, back and abdomen and remains in hospital in a stable condition. A 33 year old man received injuries to his leg and has since been released from hospital.

The suspect is described as a black man in his late 20s or early 30s. He is around 6ft 1ns, of a slim build, and was wearing a dark blue hooded top and thought to have used a grey saloon car.

Det Sgt Mark Clawson from the Local Crime Unit is investigating and said: “We believe the men are known to each other and that this was a targeted incident.

“We have spoken to a number of people in the area but I would ask anyone who has not yet spoken with officers and who has information which would assist our investigation to please call.

“If you were in the area at the time and saw or heard anything suspicious, or you believe you saw the vehicle prior to or following the incident, please let us know. If you don’t feel comfortable in leaving your details please call Crimestoppers anonymously.”
