A teenage boy was rushed to hospital after being stabbed on a residential street last night.

Emergency services descended on a neighbourhood in New Barnet, north London, just before 8pm to reports of a knife attack.

The 14-year-old victim was dashed to hospital, where he remains in a non life-threatening condition.

Police remain in the area and have cordoned off part of the street.

Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident, My London reports. No further details of the suspects, including ages and genders, have been disclosed by Metropolitan Police.

The force said: “Police were called at 19:51hrs on Wednesday, 11 January to reports of a stabbing in Lytton Road, Barnet. Officers attended along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service.

“A 14-year-old boy was taken to hospital with a stab wound. His condition is not life-threatening or life-changing. An investigation is under way and a crime scene remains in place.

“Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident and taken into custody.”

The three suspects remain in custody.

Officers continue to carry out enquiries on the street, near New Barnet station, where average house prices exceed £455,000.

The latest stabbing comes days after a man in his 20s was knifed on a street in Carlton, Nottinghamshire.

In that instance, the victim suffered serious injuries and residents were left horrified.

One resident called it “the worst thing” he’d seen there in the four years he’s lived on the street.

Steve Weatherbed, a 58-year-old engineer, said: “This is the worst thing I’ve seen here, but there have been problems for months and months. I’ve been in contact with people about cars speeding up and down the road and there are a lot of arguments too – it’s horrific.

“But it’s the first time I’ve seen so many police here. It looks serious.”
