Echo: The scene the next day as police searched for evidence The scene the next day as police searched for evidence

POLICE believe a man found stabbed on a Leigh street could have been wounded when a passer-by bumped into him.

Officers said yesterday the 34-year-old victim had been walking in East Street, just before 9.30pm on Monday, March 17, when a man bumped into him as he walked by.

After reaching the Broadway, a short time later, he noticed he had been stabbed. He was taken to hospital and is nowrecovering from his injuries at home.

A 30-year-old woman was initially arrested over the incident but was later let go without charge.

Police sealed off an area behind The Broadway shops and part of Oakleigh Park Drive the next day while searching for evidence.

Now officers want to speak to the man who bumped into him moments before he noticed his injuries.

Det Con Layla Baker of Southend CID, said: “We are not sure if this male passer-by is a suspect, or witness, but we need to identify him and talk to him.

“He was a white man, aged about 30, 6ft tall, slim, with dark hair. At the time he was wearing dark clothing.”

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call detectives at Southend on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Great description of the 'passer-by' should be no problem identifying him.

Yeah, really don't care. What on earth are you on about?
They arrested somebody at the time, enquiries showed that was not the person responsible. Enquiries have continued and now they have another enquiry line so have gone to the media to help.
I don't suppose they can make up descriptions, so have to publish what the victim has described to them.
Have you been watching Jonathan Creek again and think they can solve it by magic?

Again lie detectors would assist, we would know if there is something the victim is not revealing, such as the motive, or if it was a genuine rare unprovoked stabbing of a random stranger.

I did not make that comment. It's our old mate Chucky again. This is not my style as people here well know.

She's a bit deranged. Obviously matron did not call around today with her meds. Or the botox has migrated to her brain.

No, there are used to assist police investigations in many countries, most notable north America. They were used successfully in crime prevention long before Jeremy Kyle or Jerry Springer had even been thought up as concepts.

Lie detectors are inherently inaccurate hence the reason they are inadmissible in court and not used by the UK police. They are easily fooled with 10 minutes prior education on the Internet and as such, any potential motive gained from a lie detector would not be usable for securing a warrant for gaining a conviction.
