Three teenagers have been stabbed in three separate attacks in the borough in just two days.

The victims, two aged 19 and a 17-year-old, were targeted in Sudbury and Wembley on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

In the first attack on Tuesday, a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in the arm, punched, and kicked after he was ambushed by six black youths after boarding a 182 bus near Sudbury, at around 4pm.

He eventually managed to escape his attackers and walked into Wembley Police Station where he raised the alarm and was rushed to hospital.
