An investigation has been launched this evening (12 September) following a teenager being stabbed in Sheffield City Centre.

At 4:20pm we received a call to inform us that a 14-year-old boy needed medical assistance on Norfolk Street.

Emergency Services attended and the boy was taken to hospital with wounds to his neck. His injuries are serious, but not believed to be life-threatening.

It is believed the incident happened close by the Town Hall and a scene was in place while enquiries were carried out.

Officers and detectives will remain in the area while they work to understand how the boy became injured.

Sheffield Response Inspector Josh Setterfield said: “We understand how incidents of this nature cause concern for our communities, and I want to reassure you that we are working quickly and efficiently to understand who caused an injury to a boy, and why.

“Anyone with information they believe can assist us with our enquiries is asked to report online, via live chat or by calling 101 quoting incident number 657 of 12 September 2023.”

You can provide information anonymously via independent charity Crimestoppers- 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
