Thames Valley Police have issued a statement after a teenager was stabbed just yards from his school.
On Tuesday afternoon the student, who attends The Lord Grey School, was stabbed following an altercation between a group of teenagers.
The Year 12 pupil was taken to Milton Keynes Hospital, where his injuries are described as not life-threatening.
Supt Gez Chiariello, the LPA commander for Milton Keynes, said: “I would like to reassure the community that we are investigating this incident, and we are working hard to establish exactly what happened in Whaddon Way.
“We are talking to key people and will leave no stone unturned during the course of this investigation, and we appeal to the public to come forward with any information or concerns they may have following this very serious incident.
“Patrols in the area have also been stepped up, so the police presence has been heightened and this will be visible to members of the public as a sign of reassurance.”
Investigating officer Det Sgt Ian Holmes said: “If you were involved in this altercation, or know someone who is, then get in touch with us immediately.
“We believe there may have been people also with mobile phones who may have recorded what took place. If you saw the incident, please get in touch so we can establish what happened.
