DI Charlotte Poole from Salford CID said: “This was a spontaneous attack, in which a young man has received a stab wound to the neck. Thankfully, it’s not life-threatening, or life-changing, but it has still left the young man in hospital, recovering from surgery he’s had to have for a very serious injury.

“We have initiated the S60 and we would like to reassure members of the local community that this seems to be an isolated attack. We will have more officers around Little Hulton today and they will be happy to speak to anyone who may have more information on this incident, that may be able to help us locate these two men.
