Both teenagers – who were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) in connection with the stabbing – are also 14.

The incident occurred at around 9pm on Tuesday, June 11, when the 14-year-old victim and a friend were walking through King George V Playing Fields, near to the Furzefield Leisure Centre in Mutton Lane.

They were approached by four teenage boys, who police believe are known to each other, and a “physical altercation” is said to have taken place.

 A 14-year old boy was stabbed and taken to hospital by the ambulance service.

The police have said he is still receiving treatment in hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.
