A MAN was stabbed in the early hours of Saturday morning in a Herefordshire village.

Police were called to Tinglebrook Close in Madley at just after 2am on Saturday (November 20).

"On arrival officers found a man had suffered a small stab wound to his chest and the top of his head," said police in a statement.


A man in his 30s from Hereford was arrested in connection with the incident on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and was later released on bail.

After the incident Hereford police released a warning.

They said: "There is no safe place to be stabbed: a stab wound in the arms or legs can be just as fatal as those in the neck or chest."
