The victim has since been discharged from hospital.

Police say the stabbing is believed to have taken place in nearby Blythe Hill Fields.

Officers are looking for a white man, 5ft 8ins tall and of slim build, in connection with the stabbing.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.

Puts a whole new meaning on the term "pinch, punch, first of the month". On a serious note, I can't understand people of today. Everything has to be settled with weapons.
