Four people seriously injured in incident outside Plymouth pub

Four people have been seriously injured following unconfirmed reports of “multiple stabbings” outside a pub in Plymouth. 

Police were called to the incident near the Railway Inn in the Stoke area of the city just after 10pm on Saturday night.

Officers found four people with serious but non-life-threatening injuries and they have since been taken to the hospital.

The suspect had fled the scene by the time the police arrived but has since been found and arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Media reports suggest there were multiple stabbings.

Armed officers initially went to an address in Beacon Park to locate the suspect, but he was not there.

The man, in his 50s, was later found after a vehicle was stopped on the outskirts of Exeter.

He was arrested and initially taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Police are continuing their enquiries.
