A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was stabbed and robbed at a house party in Leyland.

Officers were called to an address in Sycamore Gardens after reports of a stabbing.

The incident happened at 10.30pm on Friday, January 22 but police have only released details today.


A 16-year-old boy was found near to the scene with injuries to his face and stab wounds to his leg.

Police believe he was attacked by up to five men in the rear garden of the property.

The group removed his wallet and took £10 before the teenager was stabbed in the leg with a knife.

The men left the property and the 16-year-old was taken to Royal Preston Hospital for treatment.

Detectives believe between 20 and 30 people were at the party and are keen to speak to anyone who saw the incident.

Det Con Karen Harrison, of Lancashire CID, said: “This was a vicious attack on a teenage boy which left him with nasty injuries to his face and leg.

“We believe up to 30 people attended the party and someone must know who carried out this assault.

“I would ask anyone reading this appeal to do the right thing and come forwards, naming the individuals responsible.

“We are also keen to trace a woman who stopped to help and give first aid to the teenager near to Morrisons in Leyland.

“All information reported will be treated in the strictest confidence.”
