Sergeant Ferguson said: “Just before 11 am, it was reported that a man in his 50’s received a stab wound to his neck as he was walking between the Turf Lodge and White Rock areas yesterday.
“It is believed that three males verbally abused the man and then one of the males stabbed him in the neck.
“The man was treated at hospital for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.
“Enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash-cam footage at that time from the area to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 551 25/12/18.
“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
