Stabbings And Knife Crime In Greater Manchester

greater manchester knife crime

A bad start to 2023. In Greater Manchester there were 11 stabbings in just 17 days from January 7th to 24th 2023.

This website has often highlighted Merseyside and Liverpool in particular but as January 2023 progresses, it seems that the Greater Manchester area is trying to outdo Liverpool for stabbings and knife crime on the streets.

According to figures released at the end of December 2022, there has been a 40% increase in knife crime in the Greater Manchester region over the three-year period 2018 to 2021.

This trend shows no sign of dropping as Greater Manchester Police statistics reveals that the worst districts of Manchester for stabbings are the post codes of the City Centre, plus Fallowfield, Longsight, and of course Moss Side.

Consider this sad reflection of stabbings between January 7th and January 24th 2023:

January 7th – 4am – 3 men suffered knife wounds on the streets of Halliwell.
January 8th – 4.20pm – the middle of the afternoon, a 34-year-old man found with stab wounds at a tram stop in Market Street.
January 10th – A 62-year-old stabbed and hospitalised at the Aldi car park on Salford Precinct.
January 11th – 2pm – in the early afternoon, a 21-year-old man suffered serious stab wounds on Heys Road, Prestwich.
January 12th – 10.30pm – Platt Lane – a 19-year-old man stabbed.
January 15th – Churchgate, Bolton – 2.25am – an 18-year-old man suffered serious knife injuries.
January 22nd – Stockport Road, Levenshulme , 11 pm – a 19-year-old man suffered serious life-threatening stab wounds. Later GMP arrested a 20 year old man from Gorton, Akbar Kafeel Khan and charged him with attempted murder.
January 24th – 5.10pm – mid-afternoon outside Lloyd’s bank on Salford Precinct a man was knifed in the neck and hospitalised.
January 24th at Parrs Wood High School a 14-year-old girl was rushed to hospital with stab wounds, after being attacked with a broken bottle in the school grounds. GMP later arrested a 14-year-old boy.

All the above makes grim reading and is direct reflection on escalating violent crime across Greater Manchester and none of the above reports include incidents of gun crime.
