Bedfordshire Police appeal after serious assault

A 17-year-old man was seriously assaulted in Boswell Place in Bedford yesterday evening.

Police received reports of a man being stabbed and shortly after they arrived a 17-year-old was taken to hospital for treatment to injuries to his chest and abdomen. He is currently in a stable condition.

A 20-year-old man was also injured during the incident after a brick was thrown at him.

Two 17-year-old men were arrested shortly after the incident on suspicion of attempted murder and they will be questioned by police today.

Police are appealing with anyone with information to come forward. They believe there may have been an argument earlier in the evening between a group of men and the victim.
