A third teenage boy has been arrested in connection with a stabbing in Thames Ditton, which left another teenager in hospital with serious injuries.

The 14-year-old boy, from Richmond, was interviewed in custody and has subsequently been released on bail conditions, one of them preventing him from entering the county of Surrey.

The incident, on January 12, saw 16-year-old Harry Shearman stabbed three times near a rail bridge close to Woodfield Road.

He was rushed to hospital in a serious condition, but his father, Claygate Royals FC chairman Tony Shearman, later spoke out to say his son was “out of immediate danger”, and he is understood to now be recovering.

A 14-year-old from Kingston-upon-Thames is currently remanded in custody awaiting trial after he was charged with robbery, grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife in a public place. He will next appear at Kingston Crown Court on 13 February.

A 15-year-old from Kingston, who was arrested on 14 January, remains under investigation after he was released from police custody.

A Surrey Police spokesman added: “We are still appealing for anyone who saw what happened, or with any other information, possibly through comments, pictures or videos, that they’re aware of via social media channels, to get in touch.

“If you can help, please contact us on 101 (999 in an emergency) or http://surrey.police.uk/TellUsMore, quoting reference PR/45190004139.”
