A man is in hospital with serious injuries after being stabbed in Norwich.
Police were called to Bluebell Road at just before 3am today to reports a man in his 20s had been stabbed.
The victim suffered serious injuries, and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, where he remains.
Three people have been arrested in connection with the stabbing.
A male and female were taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre, and one male was taken to Aylsham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
Police have cordoned off two areas whilst initial enquiries are carried out.
One of the areas which was cordoned off was close to the junction of Bluebell Road with The Avenues.
Blue and white police tape covered part of the road and pathway/cycle lane running besides the University of East Anglia student accommodation.
A police van was in the road, which was reduced to one lane of traffic, with a single police officer on duty.
The cordon was removed at just before midday.
People living nearby were shocked to learn there had been a stabbing so close to their homes.
One woman said: "I didn't hear anything last night, but that's awful."
Passers-by were also concerned over whether the victim was a student at the nearby university.
Police have yet to release any details about the victim.
The other cordon was in George Borrow Road.
