A teenager has been stabbed during an altercation near a McDonald’s in Swindon
Emergency services were called to the Orbital Retail Park area, off Thamesdown Drive, at around 9.30pm yesterday evening (Thursday, 6 October).
A teenage boy was located with a knife wound and taken to hospital for treatment – but Wiltshire Police say his injury is not life-threatening.
According to witnesses, a young male was knocked off his bike by a car and stabbed by one of the occupants who then fled the area – but this has not been confirmed.
Following the serious assault, a footbath alongside Shepperton Way, in Abbey Meads, was cordoned off as a crime scene overnight and for most of today (Friday, 7 October).
A plastic box appeared to cover a glass bottle resting on top of the hedgerow – located about half a mile from the McDonald’s.
Two men have since been arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent. They are currently in police custody for questioning.
A teenage male was also arrested on suspicion of affray. He is also in custody.
