Teenager stabbed in Greater Manchester

A teenage boy was stabbed in the back and his friend robbed in Clayton. The 17-year-old escaped with a small knife wound after he was attacked on Iredine Street at about 5.45pm on 31 October.

He and two friends were on their way to the shops on Ashton New Road when they were confronted by two men. The two men followed them and then snatched one of the boy's mobile phone. One of the offenders then stabbed the 17-year-old boy with a knife, before running off.

The boy was treated in hospital for his injuries.
