We are appealing for witnesses following a stabbing in Hurst Green.
Officers were called to the area yesterday afternoon (Thursday, 19 October) at around 2.30pm following reports of a stabbing, which is believed to have taken place on Nunappleton Road near to the footbridge over the railway line.
A 17-year-old boy was treated in hospital for stab wounds and has since been released.
There will be a continuing police presence in the area today while we conduct witness and CCTV enquiries, but there are no longer any police cordons in place.
Inspector Lyndsey Whatley, Borough Commander for Tandridge, said, “We understand that this is an alarming incident for the local community, and would like to reassure residents that we are taking all possible steps to identify the individuals involved.
“We do not believe there to be any risk to the wider public, but there will be an increased police presence in the area over the next day or two, so if you have any concerns I encourage you to speak to one of our officers directly.
“We believe there were several eyewitnesses who saw this incident unfold, and we ask that they get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can progress this investigation swiftly.”
