Man taken to hospital with stab wounds

A man is in a serious condition in hospital after being stabbed several times in what police say was an attempted murder.

The 20-year-old was found by a member of the public on around 9.35pm on Friday night in Keir Hardie Road, Larkhall, South Lanakrshire.

He was taken to Wishaw General Hospital where medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

Police said the attack was being treated as attempted murder.

Detective Sergeant Ronnie Douglas, of Cambuslang CID, said: “From our inquiries so far, we understand that there had been a party in a house near to where the man was found, however, there was nothing ongoing on police arrival.

“We have still to establish whether he had been at the party or not so would ask that anyone who was there or who maybe saw a disturbance in the street, contact police.

“If you have any information that will assist officers with their investigation, then please contact Cambuslang CID via 101. Please quote incident number 4427 of the 15 March 2019 when calling.”
