The 18-year-old was rushed to hospital around 10am yesterday after being found stabbed on Borneo Street, near to the junction with Lichfield Street.

Police say the teen suffered 'serious injuries' but has since undergone surgery and his condition is now described as stable.

No one has been arrested over the stabbing and police continue to appeal for witnesses.

Borneo Street was sealed off while forensic experts examine the scene.

Officers also conducted house to house enquiries.

One woman, a neighbour, who wished not to be named, said: "The incident is shocking, it is dreadful. We don't see anything like this around here."

Another neighbour, Hassan Hussain, aged 26, said the victim's mother came to his house for help.

He said: "The mother from the address came to our house knocking on our door saying 'my little one has been stabbed'.

"My mother and father went over there and the little one (victim) was bloodied up.

"The lad is a good person. Obviously it is shocking to us, we have lived at the address for 16 years and haven't seen anything like this before. The police and air ambulance arrived."
