Authorities swiftly responded to an emergency call at approximately 11:00 p.m. BST on Saturday, directing emergency services to an address on Eastfield Avenue in Bath.
The immediate aftermath of the incident saw six teen boys and two teen girls apprehended on a bus within thirty minutes of the reported stabbing, according to the police. Subsequently, three additional teenage boys were arrested on Sunday, bringing the total number of detainees to eleven.
Avon and Somerset Police have confirmed that all teenagers, including the eight initially apprehended on the bus on Lansdown Lane at 11:30 p.m., are presently in police custody.
