A teenager who suffered life-threatening injuries after he was stabbed in the chest has spent the weekend in hospital recovering from his injuries.

The 16-year-old was stabbed at the Hamilton Bus Terminal on Thursday afternoon.

He was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and underwent emergency surgery before being transferred to the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Last night a police spokesman said: “The 16-year-old male injured during last week’s stabbing incident at the Hamilton Bus Terminal remains in hospital receiving treatment for his injuries.”

The spokesman did not give details on the condition of the victim, if he was still in ICU or had been transferred to a general ward.

An 18-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene, while a second man, who was “seen to have boarded an awaiting bus” was arrested after a struggle with armed officers.

Both men were last reported to be in police custody.
