Boy Stabbed In Essex Park

A 17-year-old boy's been stabbed in what police think was an unprovoked attack in Brentwood.

The teenager was taken to Broomfield Hospital with stab wounds to the back after what happened at a park on Church Lane at about 5.45pm on Friday.

Dc Sue Horswill, from Harlow CID, said: "We are extremely keen to hear from any witnesses to this incident so that we can piece together what has happened. This was a seemingly unprovoked attack which left a young man needing stitches.

"It was still daylight when the incident happened so I’m confident that others in the park at the time, or passers-by will have seen something and will be able to help with our enquiries."
