A man has been arrested following an attempted stabbing in Chorleywood.
On Friday, May 27, at around 9.45pm, an altercation took place between two teenagers on Chorleywood Common.
It was reported that a male wearing a balaclava punched another male in the head, before attempting to stab him twice.
The victim, a 15 year old, did not sustain any stab wounds. He suffered a cut to the head as a result of the punch.
Detective Constable Robert King, who is investigating, said: “One person was arrested in connection with the incident, and they have since been released on bail whilst enquiries continue.
“There was a large number of people on the Common at the time this incident took place, so we believe that several people may have witnessed it taking place.
“If you did witness it and have not yet spoken to police, please get in touch as soon as possible. Alternatively, if you have any information that you think may assist with our enquiries, please contact me. Any information, even something that may seem minor or insignificant, could be key to progressing our investigation.”
