Teenage boy stabbed in leg during assault in Milton Keynes

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after an assault and affray in Milton Keynes on Wednesday (27/4).

At around 4.15pm, a group of four youths carrying knives and machetes chased another group of three youths out of the underpass next to Greenleys local centre off Ardwell Lane.

The armed group chased the other group in front of the shops on Ardwell Lane and attacked one of the youths, causing a stab wound to his leg.

The armed group then left the area in a taxi.

The victim, a teenage boy from Milton Keynes, was taken to Milton Keynes University Hospital but has since been discharged.

Four 15-year-old boys, three from Milton Keynes and one from Bletchley, have been arrested on suspicion of affray, possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and causing grievous bodily harm with intent. They have been bailed until 25 May.
