Luton stabbing: Fifth arrest after teenager badly hurt
A fifth teenager has been arrested on suspicion of affray following a stabbing during a fight on a Luton street.
The 17-year-old's arrest follows those of four other teenagers on Tuesday.
The fight started outside Lloyds Bank in George Street before moving into Wellington Street, where the 18-year-old victim was stabbed.
All five teenagers, three 17-year-olds and two aged 18 and 19, remain in custody.
Police had been called to the scene at 12:15 GMT.
Some of those involved were armed with knives and used their belts as weapons, a police spokesman said.
The victim was taken to hospital in a squad car and Bedfordshire Police said he had serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. His condition is described as stable.
Det Insp Sean Quinn said: "This is being treated as an isolated incident between two groups of people."
Officers would be "trawling through CCTV to identify anyone who was involved", he said.
