At around 6.45pm on Thursday, December 12, police were called to St Gregory's Alley, off St Benedict's Street, to reports that a male victim had been attacked.

The incident happened outside Athena Games and when police attended soon after the call blood was discovered at the scene.

The man was taken to hospital for further treatment and police continue to investigate the circumstances of the attack.

A police cordon was put in place for more than an hour after the alleged attack.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary initially said that the possibility of a stabbing was one of the lines of enquiry officers investigating the attack would be following.

However, it has since been confirmed that no other people are being sought in connection with the incident any more.

A spokesman said: "We were called to reporters of a man bleeding heavily after sustaining injuries in St Gregory's Alley in Norwich.

"The man was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident."

An eye witness said: "I followed the blood trail from outside the Birdcage pub on Pottergate and found the victim slumped in a doorway in a pool of blood."

The witness added that the man looked to be aged between 25 and 32.
