Detectives hunt knife used in South Ham stabbing
DETECTIVES have appealed for help to find the knife used to stab a teenager in Basingstoke.
A 19-year-old man from Basingstoke suffered serious facial injuries when he was stabbed during a fight in Pinkerton Road, South Ham, near Aldworth School, around midnight on Saturday, October 26.
He is currently in hospital in a stable condition.
Detective Inspector Justin Torgout appealed for people in the Pinkerton Road area of South Ham to look out for a discarded knife, particularly in the playing fields of Aldworth School and Bishop Challoner School.
He urged anyone who had picked up a knife to contact them and asked people to check their bins in case it had been left there.
Det Insp Torgout said: “This was a nasty assault which has left a teenager with serious injuries.
“We have been conducting extensive enquiries in the South Ham area, speaking to witnesses and establishing the exact circumstances of what happened.
“A key part of our enquiries is to find the knife that was used in this incident.”
Detectives have since arrested three men on suspicion of attempted murder.
Two of the men, a 23-year-old man from Basingstoke and a 28-year-old man from London, were bailed until December, pending further enquiries.
The third man, a 27-year-old from Basingstoke, is in police custody.
Anyone with information can contact Basingstoke CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
