A MAN and a 16 year-old boy have been arrested in connection with a suspected stabbing in Leamington’s Pump Room Gardens on Tuesday afternoon (August 11).

The 21 year-old man and the teenager are in custody after police were called to the gardens shortly before 2pm after a man sustained injuries to his shoulder, believed to have been caused by a ‘bladed weapon’.
