At around 4.20pm on Tuesday 16 January, police were called to Matthews Street in West Gorton to reports that a man had been attacked by a group of men and stabbed multiple times. 
Police and ambulance services attended and a 40-year-old man was taken to hospital for treatment. He is currently in a stable condition. 
It is believed the victim may have been in an earlier dispute with a man over the sale of a vehicle. Officers are not ruling this out of the investigation and would like to hear from anyone who may have information which could help with their enquiries to get in touch. 
Detective Chief Inspector Liam Boden from GMP’s City of Manchester Team said: “This was an extremely violent assault, where the victim received multiple stab wounds. He is currently in a stable condition in hospital, but he has a long way to go and my thoughts are with him. 
“We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have seen a group of men in the area around the time of the assault to get in touch. 
“Also, anyone who may have information about a dispute over the sale of a vehicle, is also asked to get in touch. 
“We will do all that we can to find those responsible and get the victim and his family the answers they deserve.” 
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 6075 alternatively call 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
