Arrest after 'pub stabbing' leaves man in "serious" condition


A 57-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a man in his 30s was allegedly stabbed in the stomach outside a pub, leaving him in “serious” condition in hospital.

The stabbing happened in Stopford Road at the Temple Bar in St. Helier, just after 21:00 last night (Friday 3 December).

Firearms officers were called to the area, and arrested a 57-year-old man shortly after. He remains in police custody.

Officers said: “It’s believed that the suspect and the victim were known to each other and had some form of altercation inside the bar before the suspect left. He returned approximately 10 minutes later and stabbed the victim in the doorway with a kitchen knife.

“The victim was conveyed by ambulance to hospital where he remains in a stable but serious condition.”
