Two men have been arrested in connection with an incident where a man was stabbed in Podsmead, Gloucester earlier this week.
They have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm following the incident which happened on Shakespeare Avenue around 9.30pm on Wednesday (21 September).
Police received reports that a cyclist had been in a collision with a car, and the occupants of a second nearby vehicle then attacked him with weapons.
Detectives investigating the incident are appealing for anyone who saw a silver saloon being driven erratically in the area to come forward.
The vehicle had been driven from Shakespeare Avenue onto Cole Avenue at speed, and police are keen to hear from anyone who has dashcam or other footage of this vehicle.
This incident is being treated as targeted, and not a random attack on a stranger.
The two men remain in police custody and enquiries continue.
A 27-year-old man who had sustained several stab wounds has since been discharged from hospital.
Anyone who has information about the silver saloon, or any footage which may assist, is asked to contact police by completing the following online form and quoting incident 487 of 21 September: www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
