An Asda worker tries to keep him on his feet but he collapses onto his back, leaving behind a trail of blood.

He gets to his feet moments later and is held by the supermarket worker who repeatedly says: “Stay there, stay there”.

The footage also shows him slumped in a chair with blood dripping onto the floor.

He falls forward but again collapses before getting to his knees.

A worker says to him: “Lay down buddy, lay down, stay on the floor.”

The man, in his 20s, was rushed to hospital moments later. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Cops have launched a probe into the attack outside the 24-hour store in Dewsbury, West Yorks., and have arrested a suspect.

He was being quizzed by officers on suspicion of wounding and GBH.

The shocking footage was handed to The Sun to shine a light on the reality of knife crime raging across the country.

According to stats knife crime is at a record high while the number of offenders charged has plunged.

Blade use has soared 42 per cent in the past decade, official figures say.

Police forces recorded 43,516 offences involving knives or sharp objects in the year to March, the highest since comparable records began in 2011 when the figure was 30,400.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said the latest attack occurred outside the Asda store on Mill Street in Dewsbury.

Paramedics were called by staff inside the store and arrived at 4.47am.


He added: “Officers attended and a male, aged in his 20s, was found with a stab wound to his back and lacerations to his face.

“He has been taken to hospital for treatment to non-life threatening injuries.

“A man has been arrested on suspicion of s18 assault and remains in police custody.

“Enquiries are ongoing in the Mill Street West area to establish the circumstances and there will be an increased policing presence in the area.”
