Police appeal for witnesses after 18-year-old stabbed in Watford

Police in Watford are appealing for witnesses and information after an 18-year-old man was stabbed.

Between 7.40pm and 8.15pm on Saturday 24 February, two 18 year old men were waiting at the junction of Peace Drive and Cassiobury Drive in Watford, when a blue motorbike pulled up with two men riding it.

The men got off the bike and one of them spoke to one of the victims. He then proceeded to search him and go through his pockets. Nothing was taken, but the same man then stabbed the second victim in the torso before both men left the scene on the motorbike.
