Two teenaged boys were arrested by police after a 13-year-old boy was stabbed last weekend near the Hamilton bus terminal.

A spokesman said today that a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy had both been arrested and subsequently released on police bail.

“Police officers responded Saturday afternoon after a 911 call about three males involved in an altercation,” he added.

“A 13-year-old boy attended the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital later that day with a non-life threatening upper back injury. He was treated and discharged.”

He also thanked members of the public who have already come forward with information.

They are now appealing for anyone with video footage of the incident to assist the police with their investigation.

He also said it was still too early to tell whether or not this incident was gang-related or linked to other recent incidents.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Acting Detective Sergeant Seymour Foote on 717-2282 or by e-mail at
