Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a late-night bust-up in Stevenage’s Mendip Way saw a teenager taken to hospital with stab injuries as they search for two other possible victims
They want to trace people who made off from the scene at around 11.45pm on Tuesday after the 17-year-old was stabbed in the leg. He is being treated in hospital and his condition is not considered life-threatening.
Police believe two others, a man and a woman who had a dog with them, could have been injured – they were reported to have left the scene along Whitehorse Lane before making for the area of Quantock Close and Lomond Way. They may then have left the area, probably in a vehicle.
The man and woman have been described as white and of medium build.
Investigating officer Insp James Lant said: “I would like to reassure people that this is not believed to be a random incident.
“We are aware that two further people are likely to have been injured and are concerned for their welfare. We are urging them to come forward as soon as possible to enable them to receive medical treatment.
“It is believed the man may have an injury to his foot and the woman may have an injury to her hand. If anyone becomes aware of someone who appears to have sustained such injuries, they are asked to contact police as soon as possible.
