A 16-year-old boy was standing by a garage off Commander Close around 10.15pm yesterday (Monday) when he was approached by two teenage boys.
The group argued before the victim was taken to hospital for treatment for a stab injury to his leg, which is not believed to be life-threatening.
Shortly afterwards, officers arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of assault (GBH) and possession with intent to supply drugs (cannabis) and a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of assault – GBH. Both are from Warwick and remain in police custody.
