A MAN was stabbed with a knife during an altercation with two men near a Co-op store last night.

Police were called at about 8.30pm yesterday (Wednesday February 6) to the Greenstead area of Colchester.

The man, in his 30s, is believed to have been stabbed near the shop in Fivefields Court.

Police have said the man received a number of superficial stab wounds and was taken to Colchester General Hospital.

Officers want to speak to people who were in the Co-op store who may have left before police arrived.

Patrols will be focused around the Fivefields Court area and police will increase their visibility.

Anyone with information call police on 101.
