Brighton police have launched an appeal for information about the incident.

At 6.43pm on Tuesday (21 November) police were called to Trafalgar Street, Brighton, where an 18-year-old man had sustained three stab wounds, one to an arm, one to his shoulder and one in the back.

He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital for treatment, and is currently in a serious but not life-threatening condition.

Two boys aged 15 and 16 were arrested at a nearby address shortly afterwards on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, and are currently in custody for interview and further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Helen Paine said: “If you saw what happened or if you have any other information, please contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1243 of 21/11.”
