Grimsby Man Assaulted on Junction of Stanley Street and Grafton Street
Humberside Police are appealing for help over an assault that took place on Sunday Night on the junction of Stanley Street and Grafton Street in Grimsby
On Sunday night at around 11.20 pm Humberside police were called out after reports of a man being assaulted on the junction of Stanley Street and Grafton Street.
The 25-year-old man was seriously injured during the altercation and was taken to hospital. Police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward to help with their investigation, which they have described as an isolated incident.
Detective Sergeant Phil Jacobs of Humberside Police said: “We are appealing for witnesses after a 25-year-old man sustained serious injuries in an altercation late on Sunday evening.
“The incident occurred in the Stanley Street area of Grimsby and resulted in one man sustaining injuries. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is urged to get in touch as a priority.”
He added: “While we believe this to be an isolated incident, it will naturally cause concern to residents. Over the coming days, you’ll see more officers in the area as we make inquiries to ascertain the facts of the incident.
“If you have any concerns, have information in connection to the incident, or would like some reassurance as to what we’re doing to tackle serious violence on our streets, please do not hesitate to speak to one of our officers.
“Anyone with information can call us on our non-emergency line, 101, quoting Log 558 of 27/08/23. Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Although Humberside police described the latest assault as an isolated incident, residents have become fed up with the increase in crime.
One resident told In2Town Today News that the area is becoming dangerous with daily incidents taking place.
Another resident who did not wish to be named wanted to know where the police are and why their council tax has increased, and police patrols have declined.
Although the previous Humberside Chief Constable Lee Freeman KPM claimed huge improvements have taken place in Humberside, those living in Grimsby want to know where the improvements were.
Out of all the people we spoke to regarding the latest incident in Grimsby have said they have seen no improvement and have said they feel more unsafe now than they did two years ago.
It seems the new Humberside Chief Constable Paul Anderson has a lot of work to do to gain the trust of those living in Grimsby.
