Main article content
Detectives are renewing their appeal for information after a PCSO was stabbed in Esher last Tuesday (21 June).
The PCSO had left Elmbridge Police Station and was walking through Old Church Path (a walkway between the Civic Centre car park, Esher High Street and Esher Park Avenue) when she was approached by a teenage boy and stabbed in the arm at around 2.50pm. She received hospital treatment for her injuries and is recovering at home.
The boy is described as White, aged around 14-15 years old and of slim build. He was wearing black trousers and black footwear with a black hooded top and a surgical face mask. He is believed to have fled the scene in the direction of Esher Park Avenue.
Detective Inspector Gareth Hicks, who is investigating the incident, said: “Although relatively rare in Surrey, knife crime is alarming for the community and something we must all work together to put an end to.
“We recovered a knife from the scene and believe it may have come from someone’s home, so if you believe you are missing a paring knife with a black handle and 9cm stainless steel blade, please get in contact with us.
“You can also report information anonymously to Crimestoppers if you’d rather not speak to police.”
