Police appeal over Guildford garage attack

A man who was stabbed at a Surrey petrol station has been released from hospital, police have said.

The victim, in his 20s, was attacked at the pay window of the Total garage in Worplesdon Road, Guildford, at 0130 BST on Sunday.

Surrey Police said he was taken to the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford in a serious condition but later released.

Det Insp Andy Haslam appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Row broke out

He said: "This was an extremely serious assault which could easily have resulted in a loss of life."

Police said the knifeman got out of a white van and approached the victim, who was a customer, and two other men at the pay window.

A row broke out and he stabbed the victim, before getting back in the van and being driven away.

The knifeman is described as white, in his late 20s, about 5ft 8in tall with short brown hair. He was wearing a beige jacket, blue jeans and trainers.
