Six Boys And Two Girls Aged Between 15 And 17 Arrested After 16-Year-Old Stabbed To Death

Eight teenagers – six boys and two girls aged between 15 and 17 – have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 16-year-old boy was stabbed in Bath.

A 35-year-old woman, who was also stabbed in the incident, has been discharged after being treated in hospital.

Chief Inspector Ronald Lungu, of the Bath Neighbourhood Team, said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts this morning are very much with the family of the boy who has died.

“They were informed of what happened as soon as possible and are understandably devastated. Specialist family liaison officers will now be assigned to them to provide them with support and keep them updated.

“Officers arrived at the scene within minutes of the first call being received and an investigation into the incident is already being carried out, led by the Major Crime Investigation Team.

“We’ve identified a number of witnesses and we’ll be taking formal statements from them in due course but we’re also keen to hear from anyone who was at the address at the time who hasn’t yet spoken to police. If you can help, please call us on 101.”
