Police have released an appeal after the 17-year-old boy was attacked in an alleyway on Jameson Street, in Whitmore Reans, at around 2.10am.

He was taken to New Cross Hospital and remains in a serious condition.

The alleyway has been taped off while forensic investigations continue.

Det Sgt Chris Jones, from Force CID, said: "We want to hear from anyone who has information about this attack, we believe that the victim may also have had his mobile phone stolen.

"I’d urge anyone who knows anything to get in touch with me or a member of my team."

Investigations are ongoing and anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting log 237 of February 3. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A man in his 20s was knifed four times in Lime Street Park in Pennfields on Monday afternoon, while two schoolboys were stabbed in Owen Road and Ashland Street last Friday.
