An appeal has been issued to trace a man who was stabbed last night (Tuesday, July 12) but left the scene as a 999 call was being made.

Police said they are concerned about David Barry following the incident.

They added: “We have someone in custody, but he left the scene as the 999 call was being made.

“Whilst we don’t believe at this stage that his injuries are too serious or life threatening, we cannot say that for certain until a medical professional checks him. David was last seen in Parkmore, Craigavon, around midnight.

“David, if you’re reading this, our primary concern is your health. Take yourself to a hospital, come to your nearest police station, or call us to let us know you’re OK.”

David has links in Lisburn, Newtownabbey, Larne and Belfast, and police asked social media users in those areas to share their appeal.

If you see David, know where he is, or hear where he is, please call us immediately on 101 quoting incident 1735 of 12/07/16.
