Five others have been arrested over the stabbing last week

A fifth teenager has been arrested over a stabbing on a housing estate.

A 17-year-old boy was injured during the incident at The Conifers, in Crowthorne, Berkshire, on 24 July.

Police said a 17-year-old boy had been questioned on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and released on bail until 10 August.

A man, 58, arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and four teenagers held on suspicion of criminal damage and assault have also been bailed.

Police said they believed a 25-year-old man was left with a broken nose after becoming involved with a group of teenagers in the street. He is a relative of the man arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The injured teenager, who was 16 at the time of the stabbing, was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital for treatment and later released.

A police spokesman said: "Police are gathering all available evidence about the events that evening, with a view to seeking advice from the Crown Prosecution Service."
