Both youths suffered stab wounds on Saturday night in what police believe was a targeted attack.

Now detectives are appealing for information following the incident which occurred between 8.10pm and 8.15pm in Pennine Crescent.

The two teenagers were with another friend when a group of four to five people approached them from the New Hey Road direction and assaulted them.

Both the injured boys, aged 17 and 18, required hospital treatment.

The 17-year-old boy was transferred to a Sheffield hospital and he is continuing to receive treatment for serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Det Insp George Bardell of Kirklees CID said detectives were trawling through CCTV footage in the area as part of a major inquiry.

He added that they had not had chance to speak to the young man who is still in hospital yet.
