Folkestone man stabbed in chest 'in stable condition'

A 42-year-old man who was stabbed in the chest in a block of flats in Folkestone is in a stable condition in hospital, police have said.

Officers were called to a property in Dover Road at 16:50 BST on Thursday where two people had been injured.

Kent Police said the man, who was airlifted to Kings College Hospital in London, was now in a stable condition.

Officers found a second man, aged 40, in another flat in the building with minor cuts to his back.

He was treated for his injuries at hospital and later discharged.

No-one has been arrested, police said.

Stained with blood

Det Insp Shaun Creed said: "We are still trying to establish a motive for the two assaults but don't believe at this stage it was a random attack."

Police have released descriptions of two suspects.

They are both white men aged between 17 and 25. One was wearing a blue T-shirt that was stained with blood.

Both men may have taken off their tops before running away from the building on foot, police said.

Officers believe a third offender, a white man aged between 30 and 35, may also have been involved.
