A SECOND arrest has been made after two talented young musicians from Formby were stabbed in Liverpool city centre.

Merseyside Police officers ‘are pleased to inform the public’ that they have made a second arrest in connection with a stabbing in Liverpool city centre last month.

Tom Dempsey, 19 and Lewis Chambers, 19, from the up-and-coming Formby-based band The Kairos, were injured in an incident at around 4am on March 1 on Church Street when a group of men had been seen fighting close to River Island. One suffered a stab wound to the chest during the incident and one had a cut to his face.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Officers are pleased to inform the public that we have made a second arrest in connection with a stabbing in Liverpool city centre last month.

“The incident is reported to have happened in the early hours when a group of men had been seen fighting close to River Island on Church Street at 4am, and a 19-year-old man sustained a stab wound to the chest during the incident. A second 19-year-old man who was cut to the face was treated in hospital. Both men have now been discharged.
