A teenage boy who stabbed another youth in Sliema earlier this week is being charged in court today.
The incident happened last Tuesday when the 14-year-old stabbed a 21-year-old Englishman following an argument in an apartment.
Drops of blood were found leading out of the apartment, located on Locker Street, with further investigations revealing that the 14-year-old had used a kitchen knife to stab the victim in the chest.
The 21-year-old was rushed to hospital where he was later certified as having sustained grievous injuries.
The 14-year-old was arrested by police and will appear in front of Magistrate Monica Vella this morning.
