Two teenagers were were arrested and released on bail following a stabbing in Hackney. 

Police were called to Shrubland Road on May 9 at around 4.15pm. 

Officers attended and found a 16-year-old boy suffering a head injury. He was taken to hospital and has since been discharged. 

The stabbing was one of two incidents which led to a Section 60 authority being put in place across the entire borough the following day. 

This authority allows officers to stop and search anyone in a designated area for a specified time period without suspicion.

A Section 60 can be granted if police need to search for evidence of a crime, or if intelligence suggests a possible threat to the public. 

A 15-year-old and 16-year-old were arrested on May 12 following the stabbing. 

They have been released on bail to a date in June.
