GARDAÍ in Carnew have confirmed they are investigating how a man sustained a serious injury to his leg, as well as other wounds, in an incident outside a house in Tomacork View last Thursday night, and are examining the possibility that it was caused by a knife.
They have yet to interview the injured party, who is undergoing medical treatment in hospital.
Another man in his thirties, was arrested, interviewed and released without charge.
Doctors battled to save the 31year-old injured man's leg on Thursday night after he was rushed to Wexford General Hospital and then on to Waterford Regional Hospital. They are understood to be positive about saving his leg, barring any complications that may arise.
There were also local reports that a garden fork was used during the incident. Gardaí could only confirm they recovered a garden implement, which was taken away for examination.
Gardaí have not yet received an assault complaint.
