Cardiff incident: Huge police presence as ‘two stabbed’ and man ‘Tasered’ in street


A huge police presence has been seen in Cardiff tonight after two people were reportedly stabbed and a man was Tasered.

Queen Street, one of the main roads in the city centre, has been cordoned off as officers remain at the scene.

The reason for the police presence is not clear, but according to reports there could have been a stabbing.

A person shared a video on Twitter showing a number of police cars and ambulances.

Another passer-by said there was about “50 emergency service vehicles” on street, Wales Online reports.

Eyewitness Sophie Zermatten, 27, said: “I heard a lot of police sirens so went to see what the noise was.

“There was a large area by the Capitol Shopping Centre cordoned off and another area nearby. “

She added: “There were lots of police cars and officers.

“It looked like the incident was over by the time I had got there, but it was clear that something big or serious had happened by the sheer number of police involved.”

A 20-year-old from Fairwater was at the Ernest Willows pub in City Road when police arrived.

The man, who only wanted to be known by his first name Ryan, said: “I was with my friends (in the pub) and we were suddenly told to leave.

“We heard a bartender/server say they heard (something like) fireworks and we all had to leave immediately.

“I didn’t hear anything myself, but once I left the pub onto the road it was was blocked off at the end by Newport Road.

“Outside the pub was covered in police cars vans and officers standing on the road. I asked an officer what had happened – but was told that they could not tell me.”

Mirror Online has contacted South Wales Police for comment.
