The 17-year-old appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, May 28, where he pleaded guilty to the charges. He has been remanded in juvenile detention and will await his sentencing on June 12.

Detective Sergeant Victoria Thornton Green said:

“The fact that this child felt compelled to inflict such injuries simply because someone looked at them on the street is extremely disturbing.

“We hope that the swift investigation, arrest, and subsequent results will help the victim begin her recovery from this horrendous incident.

“This stabbing highlights the devastating impact of knife crime on our communities and underscores the urgent need for continued efforts to educate individuals about the dangers of carrying a knife and its devastating consequences.

“We would like to take the opportunity to thank the public for their support and understanding during police enquiries in the area”.
