A TEENAGE boy was stabbed after a fight spilled into the street.

The 17-year-old was hurt in Marine Parade in Worthing and had to be taken to hospital after the incident at 10pm on Friday last week.

Police say a fight had started in a flat but then carried on into the street, where the boy was stabbed in the arm.

Five people were initially arrested, but have all been released without charge.

Now police want to trace a witness who drove the boy to hospital after the fight.

Detective Constable Leigh Rankin said: "We are really keen to trace a witness, a member of the public in an Audi. This driver gave the victim and his friends a lift to hospital.

“We also know a number of people saw this fight out in the street and we need to speak to anyone who saw what happened. The 17-year-old suffered an injury to his arm which required surgery.”

Anyone with information should call 101, and quote reference 1407 of 02/11.
