A 14-year-old from Kingston-upon-Thames was previously charged with robbery, grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife in a public place.

He appeared in Kingston Crown Court on 27 February where he denied all charges. A trail will take place at Kingston Crown Court on 1 July 2019.

Another 14-year-old boy from Richmond, who can’t be named for legal reasons, was interviewed in custody and has subsequently been released on bail conditions, one of them preventing him from entering the county of Surrey.

A 15-year-old from Kingston, who was arrested on 14 January, remains under investigation after he was released from police custody.

Two 14-year-olds from Surbiton and Chessington were also arrested last week in connection with the stabbing and a robbery which took place two days later. They have been released on conditional bail.
