THREE teenagers have been arrested after a number of serious assaults including a stabbing over Halloween weekend.

Police say that a 20-year-old man was stabbed on Friday evening in Farnborough, whilst a 16-year-old boy was assaulted in Fleet on Saturday night.

Now, Hampshire Police have said that three teenagers have been arrested in connection with the incidents, whilst they are asking anyone nearby to help them with CCTV evidence.

In all three incidents, officers say that a group of between six and eight youngsters approached the victims, assaulted them and demanded they hand over valuables.

The first occurred on Friday, October 30, where a 20-year-old man was allegedly stabbed and had his belongings stolen.

His injuries are described by Hampshire Constabulary as serious but not life threatening after the incident between 6.15 and 7.15pm on Ship Lane.

A 15-year-old boy and 19-year-old man were arrested by officers, and have since been released pending further enquiries.

24 hours later, police say they received reports of several incidents at Peter Driver sports ground in Fleet.

Three teenagers, described as two boys aged 14 and one aged 13, were approached and assaulted by another group of boys, where a baseball cap was stolen.

Hours later, a 16-year-old boy suffered serious injuries to his mouth and teeth at Fleet Pond.

A 17-year-old boy from Fleet has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
