Attack victim ‘improving’

Have your say

A MAN is ‘improving’ in hospital after being left fighting for life following an attack.

The 20-year-old was found seriously injured on land outside The Belle Vue, Cricket Inn Road, Wybourn, on Saturday, March 3, in what police believe was one of a series of incidents linked to the shooting of a 15-year-old boy on the estate a few days earlier.

He was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries and is still on a high dependency ward, but improving.

Another of the incidents linked to the shooting was the stabbing of a 17-year-old on Boundary Avenue, Wybourn. And police said several arson attacks and incidents of criminal damage to homes and cars were also linked.

A 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged over the shooting and stabbing.
