A YOUNG teenager has been arrested in connection with a serious incident in which a boy was stabbed three times.

On May 2, in Knox Road, Clacton, a 17-year-old boy sustained a trio of stab wounds to his upper leg, shin, and buttocks.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and all of his injuries - images of which the Gazette has seen - required stitches. 

Now, nearly two months on from the attack, police officers have arrested a 15 year-old boy on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.

He is currently being held in custody.
