Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Thames Valley Police has launched a murder investigation after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed in Slough.
Officers were called at about 6.30pm today by the ambulance service following reports of the incident which occurred at a skate park in Salt Hill Park, Stoke Poges Lane.
It is believed that the boy was stabbed following an altercation with another male.
Officers attended but sadly the boy was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being by specially trained officers.
A scene watch has been put in place and a full investigation into the incident has been launched. No arrests have yet been made.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Shearwood of the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, said: “We have launched a murder investigation following this incident and our officers are at the scene carrying out enquiries in order to locate those responsible for this crime.
“I believe that a number of other people were in the skate park at the time this occurred, so I would like to appeal to anyone who saw this incident to come forward, if they have not already done so.
“I would particularly like to appeal to anyone who has any mobile phone footage of the incident or knows who is responsible for this crime.
“If you have any information or footage which you think could help our investigation, please do the right thing, come forward and speak to us.
“I understand that there will be a lot of concern in the community about this offence, but I would like to reassure people that we believe this to be an isolated incident and that a full investigation is underway.
“Members of the public might see an increased police presence in the area, and anyone with any questions should feel free to approach them.”
Anyone with any information that they think could be relevant to this investigation should call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101, quoting reference number 1240 (21/9).
