Police have launched an investigation following the stabbing of a teenage boy in Daventry

The incident happened some time between 9pm and 9.15pm on Friday when the 17-year-old victim was walking with his girlfriend along Fraser Close.

He was approached by a group of 10 men and youths, all wearing dark clothing.

Words were exchanged between the boy and the group who then surrounded him and the victim was punched in the face by one of the gang who then walked off.

It was only then that it was noticed he had two puncture wounds to his back, which required a number of stitches.

Anyone with information can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or, alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
