A teenager has been charged with the stabbing of a schoolboy found slumped outside KFC in New Malden last summer.

The 17-year-old who was arrested at the time was charged on February 26 with wounding with intent and threatening a person with an offensive weapon.

He is due to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday, March 17. Another 16-year-old boy was released with no further action.

Police were called to New Malden High Street on Wednesday, July 3 just before 9pm, after a 16-year-old former Southborough High School pupil was found slumped outside KFC with stab wounds.

It is believed he stumbled there after receiving stab wounds in nearby Blagdon Park.

He was taken to hospital in a serious condition with non-life threatening injuries and later released.
