Man stabbed in face at Southampton Rangers

A man was rushed to hospital last night with stab wounds to the face after an altercation at Southampton Rangers Sports Club.

A second man also attended the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital as a result of the disturbance, although at the time of going to press the extent of his injuries were not known.

Police were called to the scene at 10.50pm last night.

“Details are still unfolding, however it appears that there was an altercation between groups of males inside the club and that spilt outside,” a police spokesman said.

“At this point one of the men was taken to hospital with stab wounds to the face. Another man went to hospital, but his injuries are unknown at this time.”

The spokesman confirmed that residents in the area had reported hearing gunshots, however at the time of going to press police had been unable to find any forensic evidence to confirm that a firearm had been discharged.

Anyone with any information about the altercation should contact CID on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
