Police are investigating a serious incident that took place in Watford last week, where a 16-year-old male was stabbed and taken to hospital.

The victim was approached by two males and a physical altercation took place before the victim suffered a single stab wound to his torso.

He was taken to hospital for treatment where he remained overnight. His injury is not considered life-threatening at this time.

The assault happened on St Albans Road, at the junction with Victoria Road at 6pm on Sunday, March 21. 

Detectives are appealing for information on any suspicious activity, witnesses and dashcam footage that may be able to assist with their enquiries. 

Detective Inspector Jason Finnegan, leader of the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We understand that news of this incident will cause concern among the community but we do believe all parties involved are previously known to one another, so I can confirm that we are not investigating this as a random attack.

“The victim is recovering in hospital and we are exploring a number of avenues as part of our investigation.

“The assault happened in broad daylight and we are sure there were a number of vehicles that passed the victim and his attackers at the time of the incident.

“Were you driving on St Albans Road at 6pm on March 21? Did you witness any suspicious activity? Do you have a dashcam that may have captured something of note? Please get in touch if you have information that could assist us.”
