Police are looking to identify four males seen running from the scene of a stabbing in Brighton on Saturday afternoon (27 May).
Emergency services were called to Russell Square at around 4.50pm and a 16-year-old boy was taken to hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.
An increased police presence around the city centre will remain over the next few days to offer reassurance and a visible point of contact.
Chief Inspector Dan Hiles said: “We recognise this was a concerning incident for the community and I would like to offer reassurance that we are treating it extremely seriously.
“This is a fast-moving investigation into a number of positive lines of enquiry, as we seek to identify and locate those responsible.
“We would particularly like to hear from members of the public who saw four males running from Russell Square eastwards towards Regency Square around the time of the incident.
“Anyone who has any information that can help, or relevant dashcam or doorbell footage, is asked to contact police online or via 101, quoting Operation Badbury.”
