21 year old man stabbed next to Essex taxi rank during early morning altercation 

Essex Police are appealing for information after a man was stabbed on Colchester High Street during the early morning of Sunday 17 November.

Officers were called at around 1am with reports that a 21-year-old man sustained a single stab wound to the chest following a disturbance outside After Office Hours next to the taxi rank.

The man was taken to hospital for his injury, which is not believed to be life-threatening at this stage.

A 20-year-old man from Colchester has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent at the scene. He remains in custody for questioning.

The attack is being treated as targeted and the police are stressing that while the incident happened outside After Office Hours, they do not believe this incident is linked to the venue in any way.

Police are now urging anyone who has information, mobile footage or dash cam footage to call Colchester CID on 101 quoting incident 70 of 17/11.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
