A young boy was repeatedly stabbed by gatecrashers at his sister’s 8th birthday party recently, causing a chaotic frenzy at the event.
According to local media outlets, the two unidentified individuals gatecrashed the event and entered the designated space where 14 other kids were jumping on an inflated castle. And that’s when they took out a knife and stabbed the 12-year-old boy, for no apparent reasons, mentioned the police.
Authorities have referred to the incident as a truly despicable act that made no sense at all.
The child was not only attacked in front of 14 other children but also right in front of his mum too as the assailants reportedly carried out the crime at an event in Liverpool.
Moreover, witnesses who were present at the party mentioned how the attackers appeared to be men from their late teenage years or the early 20’s age group. They quickly cornered the child, before brutally stabbing him and then walked away, without even making an attempt at running away. Reports confirmed how they headed towards the Bootle area which is present on Southport Road.
While the boy is yet to be named, authorities mentioned how he was rushed to a nearby hospital where medical experts claim he needs surgery. Therefore, he will undergo the procedure soon.
Meanwhile, police did manage to make a quick arrest during the early hours of Thursday, where they arrested another man who they believe is connected to the incident.
In addition, authorities claim that the attack does not appear to be a random one by any means.For this reason, they claim that the suspect under investigation may or may not be directly linked to the stabbing too.
“He was detained on the suspicion of wounding the child under Section 18, mentioned authorities but he is just being questioned at the Merseyside police station at the moment.
As investigations regarding the bizarre Liverpool case-control, police claim they are doing their level best to put the pieces of the puzzling mystery together.
