Police have said they are following positive lines of inquiry after a stabbing in a Glenrothes street on Wednesday night.

A 30-year-old man was attacked on Malcolm Road at around 8pm and is continuing to receive treatment in hospital.

Officers said he was in a stable condition and confirmed his injuries were not thought to be life threatening.

Locals said the incident was the third or fourth stabbing in the area in about a month and claimed it was related to gang violence.

Police Scotland were unable to confirm that.

Police are maintaining a presence in the area, with officers stationed outside a flat on Alexander Road and outside the Baptist Church on Queen Margaret Drive.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “Police in Glenrothes are investigating after a 30-year-old man was attacked and injured on Wednesday June 1.

“The incident happened on Malcolm Road around 8pm.

“The man was taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not thought to be life threatening.”

The spokeswoman added: “Inquiries are at an early stage although officers are following a number of positive lines of inquiry and believe this to be an isolated incident.

“There will be a more visible police presence in the area around Malcolm Road in the meantime.”
