Two boys suffer injuries & two men arrested after altercation on Saturday afternoon

Merseyside Police are currently investigating after two boys, a 15 year old and a 14 year old suffered stab wounds following reports of an altercation with two other men.

Officers were called to Rydal Street, Liverpool at around 4pm on Saturday afternoon (24th August) following reports of a disturbance.

Here reports stated that a group of unknown people had thrown objects at a property in the area which had caused considerable damage. An altercation subsequently took place, resulting in a 15 year old boy receiving a stab wound to his stomach as well as a head injury and a 14 year old boy receiving stab wounds to his arm and abdomen.

The victims were taken to hospital for treatment where the 14 year old underwent surgery and the 15 year old required a blood transfusion. Both victims are currently being monitored by hospital staff and are said to be in a stable condition. Their injuries are however, not thought to be life threatening.

Two men, a 24 and 25 year old who were believed to be involved in the incident, were located on Stonehall Street and arrested on suspicion of Section 18 wounding a short time after. They were taken to custody and have both been released on conditional bail.

Investigations into the wider circumstances of the incident are ongoing.
