Police are investigating an alleged stabbing in the centre of Newquay.

They say a man was rushed to hospital with a penetrating stab wound in the early hours of Saturday.

Officers were called to reports of a person having collapsed outside the cinema.

They think the victim was attacked by a woman in her 20s further along Crantock Street.

Inspector Dave Meredith believes another man may have witnessed the attack from a nearby property.

He has issued the following appeal, urging that person and anyone else who saw what happened to come forward.

"In the early hours of Saturday 30th November 2019, at around 0300-0400am, police responded to reports of a collapsed male outside of Newquay Cinema.

"It was later found that the male had suffered a penetrating stab wound.

"The male was rushed immediately to hospital and police began an investigation and soon identified that the injured male had been attacked/stabbed in Atlantic Road - Higher Tower Road, Crantock Street".

Inspector Meredith added that the suspect is believed to be a woman, around 25-years-old, who was wearing a white top.

"The victim received a penetrating wound to the left hand side of their stomach narrowly missing vital organs. 

"They are now making a good recovery and have been released from hospital. 

"Police are now looking to the community of Newquay to help identify the suspect and any potential witnesses to the attack. 

"It is believed that a male in a nearby property may have witnessed the attack and police are urging the this person as well as others to come forward".
