A 29-year-old man was arrested but later released after a person was found seriously injured at a property in Loughborough.
Police were called to Russell Street just after 9am on Sunday, September 24, following reports of a disturbance at an address in the street.
Witnesses had reported seeing two men going into the address and then leaving on foot.
On arrival officers found a 17-year-old with serious leg injuries. He was taken to hospital and was in a stable condition.
A police spokesperson said that the 29-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident was released from custody pending an investigation on Monday, September 25.

An anonymous source tipped the Echo off and said that they saw the helicopter land on Southfields Park and that they followed police sirens to Russell Street in Loughborough.
They said that when they arrived at the scene of the incident, around 20 police vehicles, including armed police, were at the scene.
They said: “I saw the helicopter land and went out to see what was going on.
“I followed the sirens and saw that there was a lot of police cars, around about 18-20 vehicles were heading towards Russell Street, and that an area near the Taylor Bell Foundry had been cordoned off.
“Also the shop on the corner of Russell Street and Moore Lane was cordoned off. “I could see blood on the floor.” A police spokesperson said: “If you have any information about the incident, or were in the area at round 9am on Sunday and saw two men running away from the street, call 101 quoting incident 253 of 24 September.”
