We are now appealing for witnesses as part of our investigation into the serious assaults of two teenagers in Southampton.
At 3.33pm yesterday (17 October) police were called to Cobden Avenue, Bitterne following reports of the incident.
Two boys, aged 13 and 14, both from Southampton sustained knife injuries and were taken to hospital for treatment.
They have since been discharged.
Two 13-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy, all from Southampton, were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
They have been bailed with conditions until November 14 while enquiries continue.
Chief Inspector Marcus Kennedy said: “I want to reassure the public that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident and strict bail conditions have been put in place on the boys who were arrested.
“While we have spoken to witnesses as part of our enquiries, we are now asking any other members of the public who saw the incident or have mobile phone, CCTV or dash cam footage of what happened to contact us.
“You will continue to see officers on patrol in the Bitterne Park area so if you see them, speak to them with any concerns you may have.”
