New appeal to catch knife attackers who stabbed man outside Primark
THREE men are being questioned by detectives in connection with the stabbing of a man in the city centre at the weekend.
Police arrested the men on suspicion of attempted murder yesterday morning. They have now been granted more time to continue their questioning. Two of them are aged 19 and one aged 21. All are from Nottingham.
The 27-year-old victim, who was found in Long Row at 1.45am on Sunday, is said to be showing signs of improvement in hospital, but is still in a serious condition.
Police have also released details of his appearance and what he was wearing at the time of the attack in a bid to jog the memories of potential witnesses.

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre with critical injuries after the incident, which happened near the Primark store.
Police say the victim was wearing a light grey sweat-shirt, featuring an image on the front of a bearded man wearing a bobble hat. He is of mixed race, around 5ft 10ins tall and of a muscular build. He has closely cropped, dark hair.
He has so far been too unwell to be interviewed by police, but detectives hope to speak to him in the next few days.
A Notts Police spokeswoman said yesterday: "Over the last two days he has shown encouraging signs of improvement and remains in hospital in a stable condition.
"Detectives are still appealing to witnesses or anyone with any information about the incident to call them."
Detective Inspector Keith Priest, one of the investigating officers in the case, said: "The top worn by the victim that night made him quite distinctive. We believe the attack took place near the Brian Clough statue not long before the victim was found. We also think a number of people were involved."
He asked anyone who was out in the city on the night to get in touch if they saw anything suspicious.
Officers will also be handing out leaflets and speaking with revellers at the scene and at pubs and clubs in the city centre on Saturday night to get more information.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Notts Police on 101, quoting incident 119 of November 11, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
