A boy has been sentenced following a grievous bodily harm incident in Slough.

The 17-year-old from Slough, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to one count of GBH with intent at Reading Crown Court on November 4 2019.

It follows an incident on 25 September this year at around 4.30pm, when officers were called to Station Road, Langley.

A man in his twenties was found with a stab wound to his leg and was taken to hospital and he has since been discharged.

The 17-year-old was arrested on the September 26 and charged on the September 27.

On December 19 the boy was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Lyndsey Shaw of Slough Force CID, said: “Serious violence across the Thames Valley is not tolerated and those found to be involved will be thoroughly investigated and taken through the court process.

“It is not acceptable to carry a knife and those who then use these weapons to harm another person will face the full force of the law.

“This 17-year-old will now have to spend a significant time behind bars and has a criminal record. He will also have to come to terms with the consequences of his actions that day.”
