A 15-year-old boy who was stabbed in the chest continues to suffer from breathing and other major health issues, months after the attack.

The boy was found with knife injuries to his chest after officers were called to Southbury Road, near the entrance of Bush Hill Park in Enfield, on January 20 at 9.54pm.

His injuries were initially considered life-threatening, but he was discharged from hospital after weeks of treatment.

While four people have been arrested so for, all have been released on bail and the Metropolitan Police has issued a fresh appeal for anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Constable Doug Haggerty, from the local policing team in Enfield, said: “Our investigation has been under way for a number of months since this incident happened and we have been working tirelessly to identify those responsible.

"I’d like to thank everyone who has come forward so far and ask anyone who has not yet spoken to us to please come forward.

"If you were in the area or even if you have recently come to learn of anything that may help our investigation - please get in touch.

“Thankfully, the young victim has recovered from his injuries, however he still suffers from breathing and other significant health issues as a result of this attack. It is really important we bring those responsible to justice.”
