One victim suffered suspected stab wounds while the other received a chest injury from an unknown weapon in the incident in Liverpool City Centre about 5.40am on Saturday. Both men aged in their 20s were taken to hospital and are said to be in a stable condition. Early accounts indicate two white men in their 20s chased the victims and that racial abuse was directed towards them, Merseyside Police said.
CCTV, witness and forensics inquiries are ongoing and cordons are in place in the area of Cheapside and the junction of Dale Street and Sir Thomas Street.
Detective Inspector Laura Parr said: “If you live or work locally, please check CCTV, dashcam and any other devices as a small detail or image could be vital.
“Such violence will have been shocking to witness and exacerbated by what we believe were racially abusive comments. We will always thoroughly investigate serious violence and hate crime, and do everything within our powers to ensure that those responsible are put before the courts. Tell us what you know and we will take action.”
