Two men have been taken to Southampton General Hospital after being stabbed in a 'targeted attack' in Bell View in Windsor today.
The men, aged 21 and 20, were stabbed after an ‘altercation’ between four people in the road at about 3.50pm today.
The 21-year-old suffered stab wounds to his upper body, while the 20-year-old also suffered injuries believed to have been caused by a knife.
Police are appealing for witnesses and say the offenders are two teenage boys.
Earlier today, South Central Ambulance Service confirmed a man had been airlifted to hospital with ‘life-threatening injuries’.
Clewer Hill Road, near the scene of the incident, has been closed for much of the afternoon.
Investigating Officer Det Insp Penny MacKenzie of Force CID based at Maidenhead, said: “I am appealing to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area of Bell View this afternoon to contact police via 101.
“I would like to reassure the public that we believe this was a targeted attack and that the victims and offenders are known to each other.
“We are carrying out a thorough investigation into the incident and there will be an increased police presence in the area.”
Call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with any information.
