One man remains in custody following a stabbing in Bolton town centre on Sunday.
The man was arrested after officers received reports of a stabbing on Churchgate at around 2.30am.
Police believe the incident occurred following a fight between two sets of men outside the Elephant and Castle pub.
One man produced a knife and stabbed another man from an opposing group. The suspect then absconded along Deansgate and onto Crown Street.
The man’s associate was arrested and remains in police custody.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
Police have appealed to the public for information to help them identify and locate the suspect as well as another man at the scene who could hold vital information about the incident.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Rollinson of GMP’s Bolton district said: “Greater Manchester Police will not tolerate any knife crime or criminal activity, and this is certainly no exception in Bolton.”
