Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Two people, an 18-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl, have been arrested following a robbery which resulted in a Section 60 order being issued in an area of Oxford. They are currently in police custody.

The incident happened yesterday (9/11) at about 6.50pm in Barton Fields Road.

The victim was stabbed and had his mobile phone stolen from him. We are aware that there may have been a number of other people present around the time the incident took place.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.

As part of the investigation into the incident, a Section 60 order was put in place, giving officers increased stop and search powers. This order ended at 7am today (9/11) and we believe that this was an isolated incident. However, people will see an increased police presence, including additional patrols, in the area over the next few days while our investigation continues.

Investigating officer, Sergeant Dave Woodhouse, based at Oxford police station, said: “This was a violent incident which resulted in a 16-year-old being stabbed. Fortunately, he has since been discharged from hospital.

“I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding during this time. 

“If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to one of our officers.

"Additionally, if you have any information which you think could be relevant to our investigation, please call Thames Valley Police on the non-emergency number 101 or make a report online. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 .”
