The breakdown of law and order and rise in violent crime on the streets of England is unfolding across the country, with another stabbing in Cambridge.
A man in his 20s was stabbed in the early hours of yesterday morning, with police attending the scene in Parker’s Piece in the heart of the city. A man was taken to hospital with stab wounds.
Detective Sergeant Ashley Ryan has said: “This was a vicious attack that could have been even worse.”
It follows a wave of violence in the city, including an incident that saw a 13-year-old and 16-year-old stabbed in the city centre.
James Cromwell was stabbed to death in Cambridge in 2017, and was said to have been saying “I’m bleeding to death, I’m dying” after being attacked by Abdul Korim Ali.
And Peter Anderson was fatally stabbed after being attacked in broad daylight on Stourbridge Common on July 25th.
It underlines the wave of violence now being seen in cities across the country, with people being injured and killed. So why are so few politicians calling for a tougher approach?
