A third man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing of a 19-year-old in a flat in Hertfordshire.

The "seriously injured" victim, from Hemel Hempstead, was found at Harrow Court in Stevenage on Friday and is now in a stable condition.

A 20-year-old, also from Hemel Hempstead, has been detained on suspicion of supplying drugs.

Two men aged 34 and 36, both from Stevenage, were arrested earlier on suspicion of attempted murder.

One of them, Abdul Shahid, 36, of Whitesmead Road has since been charged with assault with intent to rob.

Another man has been released on bail pending further investigation.
