Hackney boy, 16, stabbed repeatedly on Finsbury Park estate

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was stabbed repeatedly by a gang then chased onto another estate and knifed again in a second ambush.

The boy was set upon by four thugs near the Stonefield block on the Six Acres Estate, off Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, at 4.45pm yesterday.

He was beaten and stabbed, but somehow managed to run off across Durham Road and onto the neighbouring Andover Estate, where the gang caught up with him and knifed him again.

He eventually managed to escape to Brookfield House where an ambulance was called.

The victim, who lives in Hackney, sustained three knife wounds to his back, one of which punctured his lung, and one to his leg. He remains stable in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
