A TEENAGE boy has been arrested after a man was stabbed in Sheffield city centre this afternoon.
The 40-year-old was knifed twice – once in the back and once in the leg – before a 17-year-old was detained.
It has been reported that the injured man is a bus driver, and was attacked near the city’s Crucible theatre.
Cops have said to be in hospital in a serious but stable condition, while the teen is being quizzed over the attempted murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Henderson, said: “Thanks to quick thinking actions of members of the public, the 17-year-old boy was detained at the scene until officers arrived.
“Their brave actions meant that we were able to take control of the situation quickly, get the offender into custody and the victim to hospital. I’d like to thank everyone who assisted.
“At this time, we believe this was an attempted robbery which has escalated and officers are in the area carrying out enquiries to ascertain exactly what happened.
“They will be there for the rest of the afternoon, with increased patrols into the evening for your reassurance.
