A TEENAGER is this evening (Monday) being treated in hospital after being stabbed in Somers Town.

The 17-year-old was attacked at around 3pm today in Pancras Road, near Chenies Place. Two men have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

Neighbours said the teenager was bleeding heavily and holding his side.

One said: “He said he was feeling dizzy and a couple of people were holding him up. He had lost a lot of blood.”

Of the stabbing, which took place in broad daylight on the edge of a busy housing estate, he said: “It’s disgraceful and it’s probably over some trivial little dispute. Thankfully we don’t get many things like this happening around here. ”

A Met spokesman said: “Police were called shortly before 15:00hrs on Monday, 10 April to reports of a stabbing on Pancras Road close to Chenies Place in Camden.

“Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended. The 17-year-old victim was taken to a central London hospital where he remains in a stable condition. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

“Two males have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. They have been taken to a north London police station where they remain in custody.”
