Tom Kelly, T/Detective Inspector at Humberside Police, said: “We’re still in the early stages of the investigation and conducting various enquiries to ascertain the events and circumstances of the night.

“The victim was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries which fortunately were not life threatening, however this could have been very different as knife crime can all too often result in fatal injuries and we will not tolerate the actions of anyone who chooses to carry and go on to use a bladed weapon.

“Do you know who the man in the image is? Can you provide any information or did you witness the incident? If so, I would ask you to please come forward and make contact with us.”

Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police on 101 quoting incident number 95 of February 22, 2020.

Alternatively, it can be reported through the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
