Three men have been arrested following a stabbing in Norwich’s Riverside on Friday night.

A 31-year-old man was attacked by a group of men in Riverside Road between Gas Hill and Rosary Road at about 9.45pm.

He had stab wounds in his face and neck and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

Three men, aged 21, 25 and 35 have been arrested in connection with the incident.

Two have been released on bail, and the 21-year-old, who was arrested in Colchester this morning, is being brought to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Police are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the Riverside area on Friday night and witnessed the incident.
