Teenager arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing in Swindon.

A 25-year-old man was stabbed in the arm and leg in the Town Gardens, Quarry Road, Old Town at 12:55 BST last Thursday.

He was taken to the Great Western Hospital with serious injuries but has since been discharged.

An 18-year-old man from Swindon was arrested and has been released on bail while police carry out inquiries.

Officers said they were trying to trace two other men believed to have been involved in the assault.

Det Sgt Phil Walker, of Wiltshire Police, said: "This was a violent incident which took place in a busy public park during the summer holidays.

"This is not a random attack and we believe that all parties involved are known to each other."
