After a teenager was stabbed through his heart in Aylesbury two 15-year-old boys have been sentenced.

They will both spend time behind bars for the attack in June this year:

  • The first boy, aged 15, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to one count of assault and was sentenced to a six month detention and training order

  • The second boy, Kieran Okocha-Sleight, aged 15, of Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to one count of grievous bodily harm and two counts of possession of a bladed weapon, and was sentenced to five years' imprisonment.

Walton Street closed after attack

Thames Valley Police were called to Walton Street on 14th June where people saw the 17-year-old bleeding and being chased by a group.

The boy had been stabbed in the abdomen, perforating his heart.

He was taken to hospital in a critical but stable condition.

Detective Constable Richard Bazeley from Thames Valley Police spoke to us about the incident:

"Thames Valley Police were called by some members of the public who were driving along Walton Street and they had seen a male who was bleeding and being chased by others.

"We then quickly got another call from the youth offending service to say they had discovered a male outside their building with stab wounds."

The CCTV investigator later found this:

"He found a piece of CCTV which showed us the offence happening in a car park over the road.

"That's where the victim had left his car.

"This shows the offenders laid in wait for him and one of them used a face covering."

He has this advice about knife crime:

“Knife crime will not tolerated within the Thames Valley, and our officers will thoroughly investigate knife crime and bring offenders to justice.

“Carrying a knife brings many dangers, not only could you hurt someone but the knife could be used against you, also if you are found in possession of a knife you could go to jail which would affect the rest of your life.

“If anyone has any information about a person carrying knives or weapons please report it to police immediately. In an emergency call 999, or in a non-emergency visit call 101, visit a police station or visit our website https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/ "
