Police and the London Ambulance Service were called to Brick Lane at around 4.20pm that Friday and found a 17 year old boy with stab wounds. He was taken to an East London hospital where, fortunately, his injuries were found to be not life-threatening and he soon achieved a stable condition.
The following day, a 17 year old male was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He was taken to an East London police station and later released pending further investigation.
