One man who was driving by and went to help the victim, said: “I saw him 30 seconds after he had been stabbed.

“There was blood everywhere, he was sat the side of the dentist’s holding his neck.”

The passer by, who didn’t want to be named, added: “He said it was a random person that attacked him out of the blue.

“He was in a state of shock, there was blood all over him.

“He said he was losing feeling in his left arm.
