A boy was left in a critical condition after he was stabbed in Maryland yesterday afternoon.
Police were called just after 4.30pm yesterday afternoon to Leytonstone Road to reports of someone being stabbed.
The victim, who police believe to be 17-years-old, was rushed to hospital.
His condition was critical when he first arrived to hospital but his injuries are now deemed to not be life threatening.
The victim’s family have been made aware and detectives from Newham CID are investigating, although no arrests have been made at this stage.
A Section 60 order was introduced until 9am the following morning across Newham following the stabbing.
The order gives police greater powers in the wake of a serious incident to help reduce the risk of further violence occurring.
