The Manchester Police have launched a manhunt for the suspected attackers in the stabbing of a 14-year-old boy on the weekend.

The injured boy, who remains in hospital, has not been identified.

Reports are that on Saturday night, the teen was attacked by two men and five other boys, armed with knives, at a restaurant off Ward Avenue in Mandeville.

The boy was stabbed several times in his chest and abdomen.

He was reportedly attacked due to an ongoing feud over a girl.
