SUSPECTS that stabbed a man in an attempted murder in Halbeath are still at large. 

A Police Scotland spokesperson told the Press that enquiries into the investigation were "still ongoing". 

Officers were called to an address in Fod Street following the shock incident, which took place at around 7.30pm on April 1, where the victim was confronted by two men within the doorway of the address.

Following an exchange between the three, one of them assaulted the 36-year-old, named locally as Michael Gardiner, with what has been described as a “bladed or pointed weapon”, before the suspects fled the scene.

The victim suffered a serious neck injury and was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. 

Detective Sergeant Alexander Brydon, of Fife’s Criminal Investigation Department, said: “This was a vicious attack which has left the victim seriously harmed.

"Thankfully, the victim was quickly attended to, however, the consequences of this attack could have been much more serious. We are eager to trace the two men involved as soon as possible. 

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the Fod Street area of Halbeath on the evening of Monday, April 1, and saw anything suspicious, to come forward at their earliest convenience.”

Those with information are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 3583 of April 1, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
