Police have released CCTV images of two men they want to speak to about the stabbing of a 15-year-old boy in Leicester.

The teenage victim was walking along Larch Street with friends on 5 April at 22:15 BST when he was approached by three men and stabbed.

The victim was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary along with a 17-year-old friend who was stabbed in the face.

Police want anyone who recognises the men in the images to contact them.

Det Con Eliot Burgess said: "The victim has subsequently been discharged and is continuing his recovery at home."

The three men fled on foot through an alleyway towards Uppingham Road, he added.
