Three arrests have been made after a teenager was stabbed in Droylsden last night (Monday).

Just after 7pm, police were called to reports of people fighting on Old Farm Crescent.

By the time officers arrived, the crowd has broken up but they found a 16-year-old boy with stab wounds to his side. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

An 18-year-old man and two teenagers, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remain in custody for questioning.

Enquiries into the full circumstances around this incident are ongoing.

Detective Constable Phil Scargill of GMP’s Tameside borough, said: “We know that a number of men and teenagers were involved in the fight yesterday evening, and we are working to establish how the young man came to be assaulted.

“Although we have three people in custody, we still need to hear from people who may have seen the disturbance last night, or have information that could help our enquiries.”

Anyone with information on the incident should call the police on 0161 856 9256 or call in the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
