Investigation launched after attack in Doncaster
According to reports, a group of men entered the Skellow Grange Boxing Club and attacked two men with large knives.
Both victims were seriously injured.
Emergency services attended and the victims were taken to hospital where they remain.
Detectives have now launched an appeal for witnesses.
Detective Chief Inspector Nikki Leach, who is leading the investigation said:
“I understand that this incident will have caused serious concern for the Skellow community.
“We often talk of ‘targeted attacks’, which we are certain this was, but that doesn’t take away the fear that this kind of episode creates.
“Let me assure you that we have several positive lines of enquiry and my team, along with resources from across the force, are progressing this investigation at pace.
“We will not tolerate this level of violence in our communities and those responsible will be found and brought to justice.
“Were you in the Skellow area yesterday evening either before 6.53pm or just after? Did you see anything usual? Do you have CCTV or dash-cam footage that may help?
“If you have information, it’s vital that you come forward and tell somebody what you know.”
Anyone with information is urged to call the police on 101 quoting incident 838 of 17 June.
