A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent after a stabbing at the Oval in Stevenage last night.

At around 8.30pm two 15-year-old boys were engaged in an argument at the shops – off Vardon Road and Jessop Road – which escalated and resulted in one of them sustaining a stab wound.

He was taken to Lister Hospital in the town and has since undergone treatment.

A 15-year-old boy is currently in police custody and is due to be released on bail later today.

Det Sgt Bianca Broadbent said: “We are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have witnessed these two boys, before or after the incident, to contact us a soon as possible. We believe the argument may have started on the walkway behind the shops.”

Anyone with information is asked to contract DS Broadbent on 101 or report online at quoting crime reference 41/46782/18.

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or through their anonymous online form at
