An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following the attempted murder of a teenage boy in Aylesbury.
On Thursday 14th June 2018, at about 2.45pm, officers from Thames Valley Police were called to the area of Walton Street, Aylesbury near to the church where they found an injured 17 year old boy.
The boy had been stabbed in the abdomen and was taken to hospital in a critical but stable condition.
Police believe the boy was with other people prior to the incident taking place.
Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Jason Simpson said: ‘The force received calls from members of the public at 2.48pm yesterday to state that a boy had been stabbed.
Although we have had numerous witnesses who have already come forward, we are still appealing to anyone with information to call police on 101 and quote reference number 803 (14/6).
Police dogs were at the scene yesterday and we have been examining forensic opportunities but the cordon has now been lifted. I would like to thank local residents for their patience while Walton Street was closed to allow police officers and staff to carry out enquiries.
I would also like to thank those members of the public who treated the victim before the ambulance service arrived.
As the investigation progresses, we are also obtaining and reviewing CCTV from the area, but I encourage anyone who has private CCTV covering the vicinity of Walton Street to come forward.
A 15 year old boy from Aylesbury has been arrested in connection with the offence and is currently in police custody.‘
Police are appealing for anyone who may have any information relating to this case to please call 101 quoting reference ‘803 (14/6)’ or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
