A TEENAGER has been arrested after a boy was allegedly bitten and stabbed in the face with a pen in St Helier.
The States police say the 14-year-old was attacked after he and his friends were followed by a man when they got off a bus at Liberation Station.
They say the suspect ‘started an argument’ with the group before stabbing the boy with a pen and biting him on the arm.
The victim, who was wearing a grey zip-up hoodie with a gillet and black shorts, needed hospital treatment.
A 19-year-old man was arrested later in the day on suspicion of grave and criminal assault and has since been released on bail pending further inquiries.
The suspect was wearing black clothing and has short blond hair, the police say.
Anyone with information about the incident, which happened outside Liberation Station between 5.45pm and 6pm on Saturday, is being asked to phone the States police on 612612 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
