Boys treated for stab wounds and arrested after Sheffield 'altercation'

Two boys, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested and are being treated in hospital for suspected stab wounds after an incident in a Sheffield park.

Police said they were called to an "altercation" in Mortomley Park, High Green, at about 18:50 BST on Friday.

The boys were arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and of possession of a bladed article and affray.

They remain in a stable condition, according to South Yorkshire Police.

A woman, 22, who was arrested on the same charges, remained in custody, a spokesperson said.

The 17-year-old boy was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug, they added.

Det Ch Insp Sam Blakemore said officers were "working at pace to build up a clear picture of what unfolded in the park".

"Local residents will understandably be concerned to hear what has happened. Additional patrols have been put in place in the area," Det Ch Insp Blakemore added.

"If you are worried, please do speak to our officers who are there for you. If you have any information which could assist our ongoing investigation, please get in touch."

A cordon remained in place at the park on Saturday while inquiries continued, police said.
