Very little information has been released about the stabbing in Broomfield Park on Monday afternoon.

The BBC and press both report that the police say that the attack on a 16-year-old boy happened shortly before 4pm.  The police believe that he was attacked by two males who then fled the park.  No arrests have been reported and the victim has not been named.
