Police were alerted at 16.47hrs on Wednesday the 17th June to a male who had been stabbed in South Street, Isleworth.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and discovered a male, aged 15 years of age, suffering from several stab wounds to the upper body. He was taken to a west London hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
The incident took place at the entrance to Redlees Park behind Isleworth Library on Twickenham Road. Detective Sergeant Sarah Swift, Hounslow CID said: "The incident happened at quarter to five yesterday afternoon, a time when the park was busy. We are appealing to anyone who was in the area and may have seen anything to contact police so that we can piece together exactly what happened."
Detective Sergeant Sarah Swift, Hounslow CID said: "Following the stabbing the victim and his friends were assisted by a female. The woman, who was driving a silver Renault Clio, stopped in Twickenham Rd to assist the group.
"The victim and two of his friends got into her car and we believe she was going to drive the victim to hospital but when they saw a police car in South Street instead flagged down the officers. The driver of the vehicle then left as the officers dealt with the victim.
"We would very much like this woman to contact Hounslow CID as she may have vital evidence to assist the investigation."
A male - aged 14 years - was arrested nearby. He is currently in custody at a west London police station.
