Officers were called at 11.33am yesterday (17/11) to reports of a stabbing in Kercroft, Two Mile Ash and located a 19-year-old man who had suffered serious injuries.
The victim was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford in a critical condition.
He has now stabilised and has non-life threatening injuries, but remains in hospital at this time.
An 18-year-old man from Northampton was arrested on suspicion of section 18 grievous bodily harm with intent and possession with intent to supply a drug of class A. He remains in police custody.
A 33-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and has been bailed.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Jason Simpson, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “This incident occurred in the late morning in Kercroft, Two Mile Ash, and a man suffered serious injuries, which required surgery.
“Thankfully, the victim’s injuries are not life-threatening and he is making a recovery in hospital.
“We believe the victim left a property in Kercroft and then an argument broke out, resulting in him being stabbed.
“We have made arrests, and although we are still in the early stages of our investigation, we believe this is an isolated incident and that the victim and offender are known to each other.
“We put a scene-watch in place at the site of the incident and there will be a continued presence of officers in the area while our investigation continues.
“We have conducted a number of enquiries already, including house to house and CCTV investigations, but I would appeal to anybody who was in the area and witnessed this incident to please contact police.
“You can make a report online or call 101, quoting reference number 43210519954.
“Alternatively, for 100% anonymity, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
“It is understandable that incidents such as this cause great concern, but I would like to reassure that this is being investigated thoroughly and there is no wider threat to the local community.”
