THREE teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after an 18-year-old was stabbed in Oakes.
The young man suffered serious injuries in the incident in flats on Wellington Street.
Police were called at about 6.20am yesterday.
The teenager is believed to have been found seriously injured in a corridor.
He is thought to have been visiting someone at the flats when he was stabbed.
Paramedics and police were alerted.
Three teenagers - a 19-year-old woman and two teenagers aged 17 and 18 - were arrested and taken to Huddersfield police HQ for questioning.
The victim was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, but later transferred to Leeds General Infirmary where he was said to be in a serious but stable condition.
The flats are called Lindley Court Flats and are the lower part of the former Oakes Junior School.
This building used to be the dining area.
People living on Wellington Street had no idea of the drama that had unfolded so close to their homes.
One man said: "I got up at about 3.30am to go to the bathroom and heard shouting outside, but thought nothing of it and went back to bed."
The school shut in 1974 when it switched to a new site next to Lindley Infant School and became Lindley Junior School.
The Victorian building became a nursing home which shut about 10 years ago.
Two years later it reopened as Wellington Court Residential Care Home - but the lower building was converted into flats.
This building is totally separate to the residential home.
There are now 21 studio flats there.
A lone police officer stood guard outside the flats most of yesterday while detectives and scenes of crime officers gathered evidence inside.
