A 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl have been arrested after a boy was stabbed in the leg in a disturbance by Warre Rec yesterday (August7).

Kent Police was called at 6.46pm to a report of an assault in Newington Road. Officers attended and the 15-year-old boy was taken to hospital with injuries to his leg consistent with a stab wound.

The boy’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The 14-year-old boy from Ramsgate has been arrested on suspicion of assault and the 16-year-old girl, also from Ramsgate has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article.  Both remain in custody as enquiries continue.


  1. Walked past there an hour before hand and it was packed with teenagers.

    Wasn’t that surprised when I walked back past to see the emergency services in there.

    These scum need naming and shaming. Big enough to carry a blade so should be big enough to be named.

    At the end of the day, you get caught with a knife then you should be put away.

    You’re not taking one out to butter bread, you’re taking one out to hurt someone!

  2. Oh no. I fully agree with what you say, there are a group of teenagers who gather at the side of Pound Stretcher store at Westwood the steal boxes of eggs from Iceland store and throw them at passing cars and put graffiti on the walls,
    one of them was seen throwing a knife into a drink carton the ground.

  3. A few years ago,when i was pushing trolleys at sainsburys in the car park. One evening some kids on bikes that have causing trouble for some time,threw something at me. It was milkshake,for all i knew could have been acid.then i had a brick thrown at me a few days later. So reading u comment bill did not suprise me one bit.

  4. Its a massive problem now Bill and needs to be addressed quickly.

    The law needs to change so minors are named in crimes like this.

    Massive problem is the lack of respect for each other and that comes from their upbringing.

  5. and what happens when they are caught = nothing , if they started shooting one or two of them it would put a stop to it !

  6. Knife carrying has spread down here in the last 5 years. There is alof of young people down here who listen to drill music and think they are living somewhere or in a lifestyle they are just simply not

  7. Surely this is a parental problem? How are these kids being brought up with no sense of responsibility? Last week an 18 year old single mother was sent down for 9 years for allowing her 20 month baby to starve to death, when she went on a 6 day jolly, leaving the baby alone to die! What is going on with people who spend a day at the beaches, leaving them totally desecrated with their filth for someone else to clear up? Sometimes I despair.

  8. When i was a teenager a bad thing would be going to a car park & wedging matchsticks in the tyre valves. This is crazy.

  9. So that was you was it! I had to get the AA out to change the wheel, or do my back in again, trying to do it myself!

  10. Everyone claiming that this is the parents fault is just assuming for no reason. I’m not condoning what the kid did but they must have had a reason for it. Think about it from their perspective.
