Police officers will be patrolling the areas surrounding Xscape following a stabbing that took place on Sunday evening (29/8).

The increased police presence is a result of an attack that happened at around 9:05pm, when a group of males were approached by two people that came from the direction of the car park. 

Police say that one of the men in the group was assaulted by the offenders and sustained stab wounds to his arms.
