A man is in a stable condition after being stabbed in the stomach at Moy.

It happened during the early hours of this morning (Sunday).

The incident – at The Square – occurred after three men were reportedly set upon by a number of others after they had left a pub in the area.

The 31-year-old victim sustained a stab wound to his stomach and an ambulance was called, taking him to hospital for treatment where he remains and is described as being in a “stable” condition.

Two others – aged 27 and 33 – also required hospital treatment for non life-threatening injuries.

The police are appealing for witnesses to come forward and have so far made two arrests.
