Two alleged stabbings that happened in High Wycombe just over two weeks apart are being linked, police say.

An 18-year-old man was reportedly left needing hospital treatment following an 'attack' in Perth Road, High Wycombe, on Tuesday, October 1, at around 9.30pm, and a similar incident happened on Thursday, October 17, at 2.55pm, in New Road.

In the Perth Road attack, a teenager suffered stab wounds to his hands and head after being "assaulted by a group of men" following a car crash.

Four High Wycombe men - Waqar Jamil, 24, of Alford Road, Mohammad Asim Khan, 21, of Spearing Road, Husn Khan, 18 of Spearing Road and Iftikar Aslam, 27, of Chiltern Avenue, all in High Wycombe - were charged with GBH and possession of an offensive weapon.

In the New Road incident, two cars crashed into each other and a group of up to three men attacked an 18-year-old man who was left with stab wounds.

An 18-year-old man, Saif Ali, of Hardenwaye, High Wycombe, was charged with GBH and threatening a person with a blade in a public place.

A 20-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of GBH and criminal damage was released on bail until November 14.

After approaching Thames Valley Police for more details, they have finally confirmed they are linking the two attacks together.
