A Knifeman Stabs A Boy, 17, And A Man, 21

A 17-year-old man has been arrested after two men were killed and a third injured in a stabbing in Doncaster town centre in the early hours of Saturday morning.

South Yorkshire Police were summoned to the location near to a pub called ‘Biscuit Billy’s on Silver Street at 02:39, where a 21-year-old man was pronounced dead.

A 17-year-old and 18 year old were transported to the hospital, where the 17-year-old subsequently died.

The 18-year-old victim remains in hospital with minor injuries.

The 17-year-old man arrested by police remains in custody.

Police said that the brutality started after an altercation.

A Facebook post on a private group from a barmaid working locally suggested the incident occurred in the street as two groups of men attacked each other.

Doncaster District Commander, Temp Chief Superintendent Ian Proffitt said there will be an increased police presence in Doncaster town centre as a result of the continuing investigation, and he added that they know incidents like this can be truly disturbing for local communities, so if anyone has any concerns, then they should go and talk to their officers because they’re there to assist and help.

A police cordon is in position around the junction of Silver Street, High Street, Hall Gate and Cleveland Street.

Police are asking the public to avoid the area where possible, and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, conducting the investigation said that they’re keen to hear from anyone who was in the town centre in the early hours of the morning who might have seen what occurred, and he said that if anyone was in the area at that time. If they witnessed what occurred or if they believe they may have mobile, CCTV or dashcam footage, then they should contact 101 quoting the incident number 135 of 29 January.

He said that any information, however small, could help them in bringing those responsible to justice. Alternatively, they could remain totally nameless by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers through their website Crimestoppers-uk.org or by contacting their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.

Doncaster like so many other locations used to be a safe and decent town – what went wrong?

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
