Residents have recounted the horrific moment two men were stabbed in an Andover street last night.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 10.52pm after a 27-year-old man was stabbed multiple times on Roman Way.

A second victim, who was also attacked with a knife, was found on Vespasian Road.  

Hampshire Constabulary said a 39-year-old man from Andover has been arrested and remains in custody.

This afternoon, officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries in Geneo Court and Vespasian Road.

One resident has told The Advertiser they heard ‘moaning’ out the back of their property when they realised someone had been injured.

“Someone was outside moaning, they were in agony and someone was screaming. It makes you feel unsafe knowing that there are people walking around with knives,” the resident said.

Another, who didn’t wish to be named, added: “I didn’t go outside but I could hear bits. I heard a couple of women walking up and down the road, shouting out a man’s name.

“The women who were shouting sounded desperate to find whoever they were calling and they kept on saying another man was unconscious.

“I think one of the victims was stabbed in Genoa Court and ran over here [to Vespasian Road] where police found him.

“Things like this don’t usually happen around here.”

And one resident said: “I have lived around here for almost 13 years now. It makes me very worried because I walk with my children all the time and you expect it to be quiet and eventful.”

Both victims were seriously injured and were taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital.

A 39–year-old man from Andover was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit grievous bodily harm and remains in police custody.

The Advertiser has asked police for an update on whether or not the individual has been charged. 

Police said that they will be conducting enquiries in the area to “establish the exact circumstances of the incident".
