    Detectives are appealing for witnesses following an incident where three men were stabbed and seriously injured in Leeds at the weekend.

    At 5.12am on Saturday 3 March police were called to Leeds West Indian Centre, in Laycock Place, Chapeltown, where the victims had been attacked following a dispute with a group of men outside the venue which was hosting a music event.

    The victims – two aged 20 and one aged 22 – were taken to hospital where they are still continuing to receive treatment. Their injuries are not considered life threatening.

    The suspects were variously described by witnesses as being of Turkish or eastern European appearance or black or mixed race.

    They left the scene in a green Mitsubishi Shogun, registration S862HLG. That vehicle has since been recovered by officers and is undergoing forensic examination.

    A 23-year-old man, from Leeds, was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. He was later released under investigation.
