Youth stabbed in ribs in robbery in Oxford car park

A teenager has been stabbed in a robbery in Oxford.

The 17-year-old was sitting in his car outside the Oxsrad sports and leisure centre in Marsh Lane in Marston when he was approached by a group of people.

They demanded that he hand over his mobile phone and keys before stabbing him once with a knife in the ribs.

Two people, a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl, have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and remain in custody, police said.

After he was stabbed, the teenager managed to raise the alarm at a nearby shop and the emergency services were called and he was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in the city.

Police said his injury was not thought to be life-threatening and he is expected to be released from hospital later.
