A TEENAGER was stabbed at Meadowhall Shopping Centre last night.

The 16-year-old from Sheffield was attacked while in a taxi at the car park near Next, just before 7.20pm.

Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the incident.

The victim remains in hospital “in a stable condition”, with wounds in his leg, a police spokesman said.

Det Insp Jamie Henderson added: “I appreciate that last night’s incident will have been upsetting and rather shocking for those who were at the shopping centre.

“I’d like to reassure you that from our initial enquiries so far, we believe this to be an isolated, targeted incident that took place inside a taxi.

“We’re grateful to the security staff at the shopping centre for their support yesterday evening, as well as to the members of the public who have come forward to help with our investigation.”

Witnesses to the incident are urged to call 101, quoting incident number 809 of November 12.
