Four people have been rushed to hospital with serious injuries after a ‘multiple stabbing’ attack outside a Plymouth pub.

Officers rushed to the Stoke area of the city just after 10pm tonight with reports of numerous casualties.

They received a possible tip-off on the identity of knifeman, but when they arrived at his address in Breacon Park it was empty.

It was only later at Ide on the outskirts of Exeter was the suspect stopped in a car and arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

One resident told ITV: ‘I live on Albert Road and drove home to find it closed but explained I lived here. 

‘I was told to go in and lock doors. Multiple police cars and emergency services including a helicopter and armed police.’ 

The suspect initially fled the scene but Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed they have since arrested a 50-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder. 

A spokesperson for the force said: ‘Police were called just after 10pm on Saturday night following a serious incident having occurred near the Railway Inn on Albert Road in the Stoke area of Plymouth. 

‘Police units attended and found four people having sustained serious but not life threatening injuries; all have since been taken to Derriford Hospital for treatment.

‘Follow up enquiries meant that armed offices attended an address in the Beacon Park area of Plymouth in an attempt to locate the suspect; he was not at the address.

‘Further enquiries and proactive police work led to officers stopping a vehicle near Ide on the outskirts of Exeter in which a man in his 50s was apprehended.

‘The suspect had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder but has initially been taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

‘Anyone with information and who has yet to speak to officers is asked to contact 110 quoting log number 1112 19th September.’ 

The residential road remains sealed off and witnesses have said that a police helicopter has been circling the scene.
