POLICE were called to a man in his early 30s who appeared to have stabbed himself in Station Avenue on Saturday morning.
Insp Leo Suret, of Filey police, said: “He had a bad hand injury and when officers got there, there was a lot of blood on the ground.”
However, it was found to be self-harm and Insp Suret said no-one else was involved in his injury.
The victim - who was not local - was subsequently arrested for other matters.
His injury was said to be not serious.
