A 13-year-old boy who was arrested after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed has been released without charge.

Shortly after 7.10pm on Tuesday 17 October 2017, police were called by the Ambulance Service to Worsley Avenue in Mosley to reports that a boy had been found with stab wounds.

Officers attended and 15-year-old Kyron Webb was taken to hospital. He is currently in a life-threatening condition.

A 13-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of a section 18 wounding but has since been eliminated from police enquiries. 

Detectives are continuing to appeal for the public’s help to work out exactly what happened.

Chief Superintendent Wasim Chaudhry of GMP’s North Manchester team said: “My heart goes out to Kyron and his family as he continues to fight for his life. 

The boy who was arrested has now been released without charge, but our investigation is still rapidly expanding.

We know that the answer to the question of what happened to Kyron lies in what others know. We are asking anyone who witnessed what happened to him to come and talk to us. 

Kyron’s family quite rightly have a lot of questions, and I won’t stop until we are able to answer them.
