North Derbyshire residents shocked by serious assault amid reports man was 'stabbed'
A north Derbyshire community is in shock after waking up to news of a ‘serious assault’ last night.
Derbyshire police were called to Westthorpe Road, Killamarsh, at about 10pm last night after reports of a disturbance at a house.
A man was then found injured near the junction of Westthorpe Road and Upperthorpe Road and was treated by paramedics, before being taken to hospital.
Posting on the Killamarsh Voice Facebook group, Sally Nicholls said: “Oh my word my condolences to the family.”
Other residents on the group asked if the person who had been ‘stabbed’ was ok.
A Derbyshire police spokesperson said: “Officers are still at the scene and part of Westthorpe Road is closed while the investigation continues.”
