    Police investigating an incident which saw a man stabbed during an attempted robbery are searching for a group of schoolchildren.

    Investigating officers have carried out checks at local schools to try and track down those responsible for the attack.

    Several people online showed their shock at the alleged incident.

    One man said: “Absolutely appalling. Need to be taught a stiff lesson.and be held responsible for their idiotic actions.

    “Could have been worse for that poor lad.”

    Another said: “Well if it was my kid in the photo i'd be marching them down the cop shop. “Hopefully their mom/dad will do the same.”

    One more person added: “Parents will be so happy to see their children here.

    “I hope you are proud. I would like to see them named and shamed, and for the school to come forward and give a statement, as I am sure it WILL NOT reflect the behaviour of the other pupils. Disgusting behaviour.”

    Police are now appealing for information from anyone who may have witnessed the incident.

    Anyone with information should contact them quoting crime ref 20/1964621/21.
