Police have appealed for information after a man was stabbed and needed stitches for his injuries in north Essex.

The victim, who was a man in his 20s, was attacked by two people in High Street, Harwich, at around 1.50am on Sunday, June 3.

An Essex Police spokesman said: “He suffered injuries to his arm and back which both needed stitches.”

The spokesman also added a 20-year-old man from Harwich was arrested the following day on suspicion of GBH and possession of an offensive weapon.

He has since been released on bail until June 30.
