So why are witnesses required?

Is there a suggestion that the victim was to blame for his injuries?

1. She's saying he attacked her and it was self defence.
2. She's saying it wasn't her at all, it was someone who ran off
3. It's a couple arguing..He's saying she slashed him..She's saying he did it himself.
An independent witness would be handy...Don't you think?

So she was still at the scene when arrested?

Why?

If I'd knifed someone, I'd be legging it.

Or is SHE the one who called them?

Another odd case.

Perhaps the police are waiting to see if she can be charged for both offences?

It does all seem rather odd, though.

Usual scenario. Lack of detail. So this man was walking along, minding his own business at 8pm and someone slashed him across the torso? It's possible but unikely. What led up to the slashing? Is it related to another incident nearby in which another 22 year old man was slashed? Is there a slasher on the loose?

The lack of detail suggests that this isn't a clear cut incident, and that the police are withholding information deliberately.

Add to that the strange bit about the only suspect not being charged for possession of a blade.....

It certainly makes a change for you to claim that you have no idea what happened at an incident that you didn't witness.

Some of us are concerned at what happened there, but you plainly came on here just to attack another poster who keeps making you look stupid.

Look, we know you're thick and that you dislike me, so you don't need to disrupt any more threads by telling us, OK? If a thread is too advanced for you, simply ignore it.

Remind me of an occasion that you were able to explain anything, AmboGay, because I can't think of any.

I've reported loads of his posts (racist, homophobic ones) but the Argus mods aren't interested in doing anything about them. He's currently got about 3 usernames on here too so he'll just post under one of his other names if this one gets banned.
