Two teenagers have been charged after a man was allegedly stabbed in Leeds city centre during an altercation following a car crash last week.

Mohammed Suliman Yousaf, 19, and a 17-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons are due to appear at Leeds Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Part of the road was closed in both directions for several hours, resulting in queues of traffic in the area.

Mr Yousaf, of Sowood Street in Leeds, has been charged with wounding with intent, possession of a bladed article and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The 17-year-old has been charged with wounding with intent, possession of a bladed article, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition for a firearm without a certificate.
