Appeal for information following incident in Bootle

MERSEYSIDE Police are asking for help following reports of an incident in Bootle on Wednesday, 3 May 2017. We are told that the emergency services were called to the Junction of Orrell Road and Park Lane, Bootle, at around 4.55pm, following reports of a collision between vehicles, on Orrell Road. On arrival, emergency services found that 1 of the cars had left the area. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the details of the vehicles involved.

3 men subsequently attended Hospital with injuries. 2 men have sustained possible stab wounds, and a 3rd has injuries believed to have been caused in the road traffic collision.

Orrell Road has been cordoned off to allow crime scene investigators to carry out forensic enquiries and detectives are carrying out house to house enquiries. CCTV opportunities are also being explored in a bid to identify the offenders.

Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:- "The investigation is in its early stages and we are still trying to piece together exactly what happened, but we believe this was a targeted attack. The victims have been taken to Hospital where they are receiving treatment for their injuries. We have spoken to some witnesses but would appeal to any others who may have witnessed any part of the incident to come forward. This would have been a shocking incident to witness in broad daylight and information from the community may be vital to identifying those responsible and taking them off the streets. We will not let incidents like this cause fear in our communities. I can assure you that we will take action on all information given."

Anyone who has information which could help the police with their inquiries can contact Police on:- 101 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
