A teenager has been left in hospital after being stabbed in the chest in Moss Side.
Shortly before 1.00pm on Wednesday 16 May, Greater Manchester Police were called to a house on Sewerby Street to reports that a boy had been stabbed.
On attendance, officers discovered the 17-year-old had been stabbed on Boston Street - near to Hulme High Street – minutes before and had ran to the house for refuge.
He was taken to hospital where he is currently being treated for his injuries and remains in a serious but stable condition.
An 18-year-old man presented himself at Longsight Police Station and was later arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault.
Detective Inspector Patrick Goodrich, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “A teenager has been left in hospital after being stabbed in the chest and while we expect him to make a full recovery, this could have had devastating consequences.
“Our thoughts remain with the victim and his family as he recovers in hospital and we have specially trained officers supporting them.
“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the incident or anything suspicious around Boston Street and Hulme High Street at around 12.40pm yesterday.”
