Police are assessing the mental health of a 19-year-old man who was detained by members of the public after eight people were stabbed in a town centre.

Officers were called to Keighley, in West Yorkshire, after reports of a number of stabbings in two separate incidents.

The first victim was attacked at about 10.15pm on Thursday in Victoria Street, while the others were injured about two hours later in North Street.

A 24-year-old man received stab wounds in the first attack. He remains in a stable condition in hospital.

At about 12.30am on Friday, a second incident happened in North Street in which "a further seven members of the public received injuries caused by a knife", said West Yorkshire police.

A force spokesman said that of these seven, four people were detained in hospital and all are said to be in a stable condition. They are three women, aged 44, 26 and 51, and a 30-year-old man.

The spokesman said: "Police have arrested a 19-year-old local man in connection with both incidents. He had been detained by members of the public near the Wetherspoons bar.

"The 19-year-old is being held in custody ... and is currently being assessed for mental health issues." continues here
