Heroic bar staff came to the aid of a 20-year-old man who stumbled in to a pub with stab wounds.
The man came in through the back of the bar shouting for help after being attacked around 7.30pm last night (Sun).
Staff inside Champs Sports Bar & Grill on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield, South Yorks., tended to the man’s injuries while they waited for an ambulance after he had been attacked in nearby Pomona Street.
Joe Robinson, 23, assistant manager of the bar who was on shift when the incident happened, said: “I think the incident happened around 200 yards from the pub, all the Sunday football had finished so it wasn’t overly busy at the time.
“This lad came in through the back shouting for help. He looked like he had a stab wound to his stomach.
“We got a cloth from the back and pressed on his wound. We tried to calm him down the best he could and tried to take care of him while the ambulance arrived.
“We asked all the customers to move round to one side of the pub while we looked after him until the ambulance got here.”
The man was rushed to hospital, while police taped of the majority of Pomona Street following the incident.
Officers were later spotted searching the pub’s beer garden and the car park of nearby offices.
A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “Police are appealing for information after a 20-year-old man suffered serious injuries during an incident in Sheffield.
“At around 7.20pm on Sunday, April 17, officers received a report that a man had been stabbed in the Pomona Street/Stalker Lees Road area of Sheffield.
“The man was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
“Officers are asking anyone who was in the Ecclesall Road area at the time and saw or heard anything suspicious to contact police.”
