Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to trace following a stabbing in Leeds. 

The victim, a 23-year-old man, suffered a deep wound to his chest and needed surgery after he was stabbed during a fight between two groups of men outside the Electric Press building, in Great George Street, at about 1.50am on Sunday, June 19.

Detective Constable Dan Pitt, of Leeds District CID, said: “We have been carrying out extensive enquiries into this incident but so far we have been unable to identify the suspect shown on the CCTV images.

“He is wearing a distinctive green short-sleeved top and white shoes and we hope someone will recognise him and give us his name. 

“This incident could easily have had more serious consequences and we urgently need to identify this man and arrest him.”
