A 17-YEAR-OLD youth has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm - following the stabbing of a man in Station Road, Langley last Wednesday.

The victim, a 22-year-old man, was in Harrow Market in Station Road when he was approached by a group of four males.

The situation became violent and the victim was stabbed in the leg. He was taken to hospital for treatment where he remains at this time in a stable condition.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Lyndsey Shaw, based at Slough police station, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident, and a boy has been arrested and charged in connection with it.

“I would like to appeal to a number of specific witnesses who we believe were in Harrow Market at the time and witnessed the incident.

“These are a white woman who was dressed in blue and also a white woman who was dressed in black. We do not believe they were there together.

“I would also like to identify the driver of a black Citroen vehicle which may belong to a driving school, which was travelling along Station Road in the direction of the High Street.

“If you are one of these people, or have any other information which you think could be relevant, please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101, quoting reference number 43190297520.”
