Two men have been arrested today (Sunday, February 9) in connection with the stabbing on Watford High Street on Friday (February 7).
A 20-year-old man from Tottenham and an 18-year-old man from Bushey have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and affray respectively.
They are both currently in police custody.
The arrests follow an incident on Watford High Street, near to Costa, at around 4.45pm on Friday.
Several men were reportedly involved in an altercation before the victim, a 19-year-old man from Bushey, suffered a stab wound to the chest.
He was taken to hospital for treatment before being discharged yesterday evening (Saturday, February 8).
Detective sergeant Darren Machin, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We are glad to report that the victim is recovering well, and that two arrests have been made today as part of the investigation.
“We are continuing to carry out extensive enquiries into the circumstances of the assault and we are confident that all parties involved are known to one another.
“It is understandable that news of this incident will be unsettling for residents of and visitors to Watford, but I want to reassure them that this was not a random attack, and we are doing all we can to bring the offender(s) to justice.
“We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the incident, which happened on a busy street at a time when there would have been a lot of other people around.
“If you have any information about what happened but have not yet spoken to us, please get in touch quoting crime reference 41/11692/20.”
