According to reports from the Thames Valley Police, one of the men, a 23-year-old from the West Midlands area, is being treated for a punctured lung at Milton Keynes General Hospital. Another 23-year-old man was treated by an onsite ambulance for minor injuries; the third man, a 24-year-old, received cuts on his head and arm but was discharged from the hospital.
“This appears to have been an isolated incident, and overall we are very pleased with how the event passed off,” said Detective Chief Inspector Justin Fletcher. “But we would like to trace the person responsible for this assault.”
Police described the suspect they are looking for in connection with the attacks as a white man in his early 20s wearing a Nike T-shirt, black jacket and black jogging bottoms. A police spokesman added, “Anyone who witnessed the incident, particularly if they captured it on their camera or mobile phone, is requested to contact the police.”
Other arrests were made at the show, with three taken into custody on suspicion of possession of Class-A drugs with intent to supply. None of the arrests were reported to relate to the stabbings.
Just a week ago, a 23-year-old man was charged with multiple stabbings that left nine injured during a show at Dublin’s Phoenix Park that Swedish House Mafia headlined, with other performances from Snoop Dogg, Calvin Harris, and Tinie Tempah.
