A police helicopter circled overhead after a clash left a teenager hospitalised with “stab wounds”.

Hertfordshire Constabulary confirmed that an 18-year-old was found with suspected stab wounds after an "altercation" between two males, who both fled the scene, in the Forest Road area of North Watford yesterday (May 29).

The injured teen is continuing to receive hospital treatment, as of this afternoon (May 30), for wounds not believed to be life threatening.

Officers are still trying to track down the other male.

Hertfordshire Constabulary had been called at around 12.40pm and searched the area, with a police helicopter recorded flying over the nearby Meadow Road soon after.

No arrests have been made at this time, a police spokesperson said.

As officers continue to search for the second male and establish the circumstances, they asked anyone with information to call 101, quoting crime reference 41/43098/23.
