A man was stabbed seven times after being attacked from behind during a terrifying assault in an Aylesbury park last night.
Between 9.30pm and 10.30pm yesterday the 41-year-old man was walking in Alfred Rose Park towards Elmhurst Road when he was hit on the back of his head and back.
The thugs then fled but the victim managed to struggle home and call the emergency services.
He is being treated in hospital for seven stab wounds.
Police say that at this stage of the investigation there is no description of the offenders, and the number of people involved can not be confirmed.
Investigating officer, PC Amy Fox based at Force CID in Aylesbury said: “I would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious near or in the vicinity of Alfred Rose Park last night to call police immediately via 101.
“I am specifically appealing to anyone with information about a silver Vauxhall Corsa that was seen in the area around the time of the offence. The vehicle was an older Corsa model and may or may not be connected to the crime, so I would urge people to contact the Force so we can resolve this issue.
“I would also like to reassure the public in Aylesbury that incidents such as these are extremely rare and that we are conducting a thorough investigation into the incident.
