A MAN has been left with serious injuries after he was stabbed in the street.

The drama unfolded after a reported altercation between a teenager and a man at an address at The Upway, in Basildon, yesterday afternoon.

Police were called and found a man in his 30s with stab wounds.

A suspect was seen fleeing the scene.

A witness, who did not want to be named, said: “I saw a load of people outside and then saw a knife being waved around but didn’t actually see the knife go in.

"It was only when I saw the guy being supported that I realised he had a knife lodged in his back. Lots of people were all arguing out there afterwards.”

Police enquiries are ongoing with officers carrying out door-to-door inquiries and asking residents for CCTV footage.

A number of emergency service vehicles were at the scene, including forensics experts, and the road was taped off.

An East of England Ambulance Service air ambulance landed in the nearby Gloucester Park to airlift the victim to hospital.
