Thames Valley Police has launched an attempted murder investigation following a serious double stabbing in Milton Keynes on Sunday (23/5).

At around 12.45am, two men, aged in their twenties, sustained stab wounds in Aylesbury Street, Fenny Stratford, Bletchley.

The two victims, along with two others, were outside Fratellis bar and restaurant when an altercation took place. One man came over from a separate group nearby and stabbed the two victims.

The offender then left the scene.

Both victims sustained serious injuries and remain in hospital at this time. One sustained life-changing injuries to his face and abdomen. The other victim sustained life-threatening injuries to his abdomen.

Investigating officer Detective Inspector Carl Wilson based at Aylesbury police station, said: “Two men have been very seriously injured in this incident and remain in hospital at this time.

“We would like to hear from anyone who has information about what happened this morning.

“Although it was in the early hours, we do think there were quite a few people in the area who may have seen what happened.

“We also believe there were vehicles near the vicinity when the assault took place. If you were in the area around this time, please check your dash-cam or CCTV footage for anything significant.

“If you know of anything which could help our investigation, please get in touch.

“A cordon has been in place while initial investigations take place and we expect these to be lifted soon.

“We know this may be concerning to the community but we are in the early stages of this investigation and will be carrying out thorough enquiries to establish exactly what happened.

“We have also been made aware of a video being shared online and we would ask that this is shared with police rather than on social media to assist this investigation.

“This could be very distressing for the families and victims in this case and we would ask that this video is removed from social channels at this time.

“If you do have information you think could help, please contact the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101 or make a report online using the reference number 43210222175.
