Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…
Police have provided more details on its investigation after a man was rushed to hospital with stab wounds.
The injured man, who is in his 20s, was discovered in Walnut Place, Sincil Bank, just after 11.30pm on Wednesday, August 21.
An eyewitness told Lincolnshire Live he found his friend “covered in blood” with stab wounds when he was visiting his sister in the area.
Police and an ambulance were called to the scene and the man was taken to Lincoln County Hospital with injuries that police said were not believed to be serious.
Walnut Place, Chelmsford Street and Sincil Bank remained cordoned off into the next morning after the incident and police divers searched Sincil Drain.
No-one was arrested.
Now, police have confirmed that the investigation is over.
A spokesman told Lincolnshire Live: “The investigation has ceased.
“The man did not want to make a complaint.”
The eyewitness told Lincolnshire Live at the time: “I was at my sister’s in Walnut Place at around 11 o’clock when I heard shouting. I didn’t much think much of it at first.
“Shortly after I heard screaming so I looked out to see what it was. I was looking and saw a figure go on Sincil Bank towards the Chinese.
“I was running after it and could still hear the screaming. I saw the figure and realised it was my mate.
“He said I have been stabbed and that’s when I saw the blood.”
After realising his friend had suffered five stab wounds in his right leg and bum, he rushed to stem the flow of blood.
And he admits the scary thought that he could lose his friend did enter his mind.
He said: “I was quite shocked really. You don’t expect that around the area.
“I was applying pressure as he was drifting in and out.
“I was talking to him as I was talking to the paramedics.
He added: “At times I thought it was touch and go as he was in and out of consciousness.”
