  1. Shortly before midnight (07 Aug) Police were called to the scene of a stabbing incident in Weaste in which a 16 year old boy was attacked by a group and stabbed in the leg. This comes after reports of knives being used during thefts in several Salford parks over the past week. A GMP spokesman said:
  2. People who carry knives are being targeted as part of a national week of awareness. Throughout the week, police will be warning people carrying a knife of the increased risk of potential injury, prison time and death. Detective Chief Inspector Debbie Dooley, from the Xcalibre Task Force at GMP, said: “Those who carry a knife often cite it’s for self-protection, but that’s not an excuse. If you carry a knife or offensive weapon you are breaking the law and can face up to four years in prison. “It’s not just the lives of other people you put at risk when carrying a knife, national statistics show that those who carry a knife or offensive weapon are far more likely to be seriously injured or killed themselves. “I also wish to appeal to those who associate with people who carry knives. Even if it’s not you personally carrying the knife, if you’re with someone who uses a weapon to injure or kill, you too could be prosecuted and sent to prison under the law of ‘joint enterprise’. “To put it simply, it’s not worth the risk. Leave the knife at home and encourage others to do so.” Consultant Paramedic for North West Ambulance Service, Dan Smith, said: “We have seen, firsthand, the devastating effects of knife crime and urge people to think twice before leaving the house armed. “Too many people lose their lives as a result of knife crime and I hope that people understand the terrible consequences for the victims and family members.” Throughout the week GMP will be supporting the national campaign using the hashtag #StopKnifeCrime across social media channels, including twitter, facebook and Instagram. To report a crime, call Greater Manchester Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
