A TEENAGER arrested on suspicion of stabbing a 14-year-old boy in Wilmslow has been released on bail.

The teen, who is also 14, and from the Stockport area, was arrested following the incident on Thursday (May 6).

The victim had been found with serious injuries on Dean Row Road at around 9.30pm and taken to Manchester Children’s Hospital where he is in a stable condition.

“I’d like to reassure the public that patrols are being stepped up in the area and anyone with any concerns should approach an officer.

“I would also urge anyone with any information in relation to the incident to get in touch.”

Detectives are still appealing for information and for witnesses to come forward by contacting 101 and quoting IML 981705 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
