Two teenage boys have been stabbed overnight in a subway in Newcastle, Staffordshire.

The stabbing occurred at 6.30pm in the subway off Dimsdale Parade West, near the McDonald’s restaurant on the A34.

Chief Inspector Clare Riley, Commander of Newcastle Local Policing Team (LPT) said: “The carrying and use of knives is completely unacceptable and we will take firm action against any person found carrying knives or weapons.

“A detailed police investigation is underway, seven young males have already been arrested and are being questioned in relation to very serious offences. The investigation will progress and we will bring those responsible for this incident to justice.

“Police officers will continue to be in the community to provide reassurance to the local residents following this shocking incident and they are proactively speaking to young people about this very serious incident.

“We are also actively working with schools and colleges across the area to address any concerns.

“Thankfully the two injured teenagers appear to be recovering quickly, and we have already spoken to a number of witnesses about the incident.

“A forensic examination of the scene will be completed shortly and detectives will be questioning those in custody.

“I urge anyone with any concerns to get in touch with the local policing team and anyone with information on this incident should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“We normally have a safe community and anyone who chooses to get involved in such serious crimes should expect to be dealt with firmly and positively by Staffordshire Police.”

Those arrested in connection with this incident are aged between 15 and 22 and are all from the local area. One of the teenagers assaulted sustained only minor injuries, the second had a number of puncture wounds and is recovering well in hospital.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
