Stabbed teens’ in­juries se­ri­ous

Po­lice want in­for­ma­tion over knifings

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Ian Proc­tor ian.proc­tor@trin­i­tymir­

TWO boys suf­fered ‘se­ri­ous’ in­juries after be­ing stabbed in West Dray­ton – and now po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses.

A 15-year-old re­ceived a sin­gle stab wound to his ab­domen and a 16-yearold suf­fered a knife­in­flicted cut to his shoul­der.

Of­fi­cers from Hilling­don Po­lice were called by London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice staff to re­ports of a stab­bing in Mul­berry Pa­rade at 6pm on Tues­day and when they turned up they found the two ca­su­al­ties be­ing treated by paramedics.

The youths were taken to cen­tral London hos­pi­tals for treat­ment and although se­ri­ous, the in­juries were not life threat­en­ing or life chang­ing. Both boys have been dis­charged.

Fol­low­ing en­quires, a 21-year-old man was ar­rested by po­lice in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent and has been bailed to re­turn to a po­lice sta­tion in early Oc­to­ber.

De­tec­tives have asked any­one who wit­nessed the at­tack to con­tact po­lice.

In par­tic­u­lar, they are keen to trace a red Smart car that was seen in the area im­me­di­ately prior to the in­ci­dent.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact CID at Hilling­don on 020 8246 1710 or Crimestop­pers free and anony­mously on 0800 555 111. Quote ref­er­ence 0918831/14.
