Teenager charged with attempted murder following Joseph Chamberlain College stabbing

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder following the stabbing of a teenager near Joseph Chamberlain College on Wednesday (13 February).

Police were called to a disturbance near the college on Belgrave Road, just after 4pm where a 16-year-old boy was found with a serious stab wound to his chest.

The youngster, who attends the college, was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

A 19-year-old man was left with minor cuts to his back and his hand, while an 18-year-old man was also treated for a cut to his hand.

The accused was arrested soon after and charged in the early hours of today (15 February). He also faces two charges of wounding and one of possession of an offensive weapon.

He has further been charged with causing grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon, following an incident on 19 December last year in Southacre Road, Highgate, where a man was stabbed in the wrist.
